Bringing animals onto CDU
In order to ensure the welfare and safety of animals, as well as that of staff, students and visitors at CDU, it is compulsory to notify the Animal Welfare Officer before bringing an animal onto a CDU campus.
The Animal Welfare Officer (AWO) will advise whether an animal is permitted on campus and whether approvals—including ethics approval and other permits or licenses—are required.
The AWO will also work with you to ensure resources are available to provide for the wellbeing of any animals brought onto CDU land, as well as to ensure the safety of people and other animals on campus.
Please note that all animals housed on CDU land and which are being held for scientific purposes (including research or teaching activities), must be approved by the CDU Animal Ethics Committee. This is a mandatory requirement, irrespective of whether the project has already been approved by another institution’s AEC.
Please contact the Animal Welfare Officer for further information regarding animals at CDU.
