  • What is non-invasive research? +

    Non-invasive research is research that does not cause physical discomfort to an animal. This means that we do not conduct research that involves cutting or euthanizing animals. In the vast majority of studies we do not even use live animals! That's because we make extensive use of information we receive from keepers and breeders all over the world. Such as weights, medication use, tracking pedigrees, and so on. In case of our microscopic investigation of the structure of quills and hairs, we ask for hairs and quills from the same keepers and breeders. Hedgehogs and tenrecs naturally change their quills and hairs constantly, so these can be collected and studied without any discomfort to the animals. Even in our field research, we keep the welfare of the animals high, although we do have to disturb the animals during their daily walks. After we have weighed the animals and taken a stool sample, the animals are allowed to continue with their daily activities, in their own habitat.
