The map below provides a brief snapshot of animal experimentation in Australia. Many research facilities using animals in Australia do not publish details of animal use or how many animals are kept. Therefore this map is an estimate of research institutes using animals. Some research using animals may be outsourced overseas. 

If you have reason to believe that animal experimentation is occurring in a location ‘on your doorstep’ then please contact HRA.   

To find out more about Australian animal experimentation, please see our detailed case studies. Action items can be found on individual case study pages.

A list of published papers involving Australian animal experimentation can be found here. 

(Note that locations have been based on institutions / departments identified from scientific papers and may be associated with universities or animal ethics committee locations. Locations are pin-pointed to the best of our ability and may vary slightly.)
