Description The European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE) is grouping of 20 animal protection organisations across the European Union (EU). We work to reverse the rising tide of animal experiments – currently over 11 million each year in Europe alone. The Coalition was formed in 1990 by organisations across Europe to campaign for a ban on animal testing for cosmetics. Having successfully achieved this objective in 2013, today we lead the European campaign against all animal testing. We are recognized as the leading EU body specialised in this area and have stakeholder status with official EU bodies which intersect with animal experiments. Our extensive team of experts from major European animal protection organisations work together through coordinated action to achieve positive results for animals in laboratories. We work with the European Commision, MEPs and the wider public to ensure that animals in laboratories are on the European political agenda. We campaign for humane, modern science and progressive legislation. And we run campaigns and work with companies to encourage them to go cruelty free.
