We hope everyone is as excited for tomorrow as we are! I was grateful to see some of our ambassadors and members from eco generation in today's session. We have a second day @24th July. The second day lecturers will be about small mammals as lab, companion, and agricultural animals.

Let's get familiar with our resource persons.

    Hi Meena,

    This is your mentor Yuseon:D

    Thanks for sharing how the second days webinars are going!
    It seems like you held another successful event for all of us.
    I think most of the discussion would regard small mammals and they're usage in
    experiments or food resources. I wonder how you guys have reached a consensus.

    Thanks for sharing:)

    Hi Meena,

    This is your mentor Debbie. :)
    I love the enthusiasm of you and your fellow members of organization. I'm especially curious to know about "the ethical care and welfare management of small laboratory mammals". There is a trend to reduce animal testing in many industries, claiming that the entire testing itself is unethical. Please update on us about a summary of the lectures as well! Can't wait to read it already!! :D

    Green Cheers,
