The IACAUC (Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee) approval arrived for our study in Belize. Of course we have to seek approval for our studies to make sure that we don’t harm the animals in any way through our manipulations and observations. Every research study that involves manipulation or uses laboratory animals has to receive approval from this University committee. Often the committee members make helpful suggestions for reducing any possible harm to the animals. During our class sessions, you will receive training specific to our study to insure both your safety and that of the monkeys.
