2010 Accomplishments Humane Society International
From HSI website;
Assisted by our partners and supporters, HSI is proud to have helped achieve the following victories for animals in 2010:
Animals in laboratories
- The European Union adopted tough new legislation for the protection of animals in labs.
- The EU adopted a new regulation that will largely end lethal animal testing to detect shellfish toxins.
- An HSI-led campaign to revolutionize EU testing requirements for non-agricultural pesticides led to political acceptance of numerous alternative testing approaches which have the potential to reduce animal use by 1/3 or more.
