Animalearn is a leader in humane science education. As an education program of the American Anti-Vivisection Society (AAVS), Animalearn works to end the harmful use of animals in education by helping both educators and students find the most effective non-animal methods to teach and study science. Animalearn’s The Science Bank loan program was developed over 20 years ago to give educators and students access to innovative alternatives to animal labs, including frog dissections, which continue to be a common activity in classrooms across the globe. Today The Science Bank is home to over 650 high-quality, animal-friendly science education products and is the largest lending library of humane science products in the United States. If you want to support frog friendly alternatives to dissection, please go to Animalearn.org and put the life back into life sciences!
