There’s been a lot of numbers floated about lately as UBC’s animal use has been discussed in the media – Here’s the figures from the CCAC website which documents research animal use throughout all of Canada.
This is taken directly from the CCAC 2009-2010 annual report. They have some figures up on the website if you’re curious. Animal use has basically held steady in Canada for the last 5 years or so at around 2 million assorted creatures.
And I’ll emphasize again, these are the numbers for all of Canada.
EDIT: I realized after publishing that the figure is far too small to be legible. 😛 However, if you follow the link to the annual report, it is found near the end of that document.
