Berlin Declaration for International Primate Day


The following declaration seeking an end to the use of primates in research was made by ADI and 25 other animal groups, and academics who attended the Fifth World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences in Berlin in 2005. After the Congress, ADI called on other organizations and individuals worldwide to sign up to what is now called The Berlin Declaration, and 70 groups have joined the Declaration:

“Animal protection organisations and scientists have united to call for an end to the use of non-human primates in biomedical research and testing. We urge governments, regulators, industry, scientists and research funders worldwide to accept the need to end primate use as a legitimate and essential goal; to make achieving this goal a high priority; and work together to facilitate this. In particular, we believe there must be an immediate, internationally co-ordinated effort to bring all non-human primate experiments to an end.”
