Media Guidelines for Reporting on Animal Experimentation

Animal-Free Science Advocacy has created Media Guidelines along with a short video to assist journalists with accurate reporting about animal use in medical research. The purpose of these guidelines is to encourage informed and accurate reporting on the complex issue of animal use in biomedical research. Also on this page you can find our most recent media releases along with industry news of interest. 

Prior to 2024, Animal-Free Science Advocacy were known as Humane Research Australia. Some of our website’s historical resources contain reference to our old brand name.

Our organisation is available for media comment

To request comment or a media interview to discuss recent scientific developments, industry changes or regarding a specific case of animal experimentation in Australia, please contact our CEO Rachel Smith at or call us 1800 486 263. 

US media professionals may find a Journalist’s Resource Guide to Reporting on Science, Health and Medicine, written by Phoenix Zones Initiative of assistance.
