Researchers including students who wish to undertake research involving animal subjects, must obtain ethics approval from the Flinders University Animal Welfare Committee (AWC) before commencing any research or teaching activities involving the use of animals. The term animals refers to live non-human vertebrates (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals), cephalopods such as octopus and squid, and certain groups of decapod crustaceans. This definition encompasses domestic animals, purpose-bred animals, livestock and wildlife.
Information and resources for this process is available on the animal ethics page.
