Vita Sacra Est
The ethos of I-CARE is based on the Gandhian philosphy of 'AHIMSA' or non violence.The Great Mahatma said "I abhor vivisection with my whole soul. All the scientific discoveries stained with innocent blood I count as of no consequence".
The objectives of I-CARE are:
to proactively advocate, propagate and facilitate the use of alternatives to the use of animals in basic biomedical research, regulatory testing and education;
to work to mitigate any form of pain, neglect and suffering of laboratory animals, by way of recourse to law, direct intervention, rehabilitation and/or any other form of assistance;
to network with institutes/rehabilitation centers worldwide that invest time and effort in the care of rehabilitated laboratory animals;
to teach, train and encourage the use/development of alternatives in education and research - tools and techniques, models, mannekins, cell/tissue culture methods and the establishment of human tissue banks.
The I-CARE website is in English only. For other languages only this brief presentations are available.
