Jodi Salinsky: Being open about animal testing in Aotearoa

From Nights, 9:30 pm on 13 May 2024

Approximately 300,000 animals are used for research across Aotearoa every year, to help develop medicines, improve agricultural practices, and increase our knowledge of the natural world.

But what does animal testing actually look like in New Zealand, and how is it controlled?

Jodi Salinsky is the University of Auckland's animal welfare officer. She's recently returned from the UK where she attended the 10th Openness in Animal Research conference.

She joins Emile Donovan.
