Research using wild animals has diverse aims, such as conservation, environmental management, and the generation of knowledge. The aim of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUCs) is to assure that such research is carried out under high bioethical and animal welfare standards, minimizing animal suffering and environmental impact. This manuscript highlights the relevance of IACUCs as an ally to adjust the procedures on animals to the norm and thus facilitate scientific progress.
