Animal welfare resources at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies
When working in the field of animal welfare overseas and in the UK, it can be easy to become disheartened by the constant challenges faced by animals used in agriculture, research, as pets and companions or for entertainment.
However it’s important that we recognise the enormous achievements that have been made and are still being made in these areas. To showcase some of the work done by education, campaign and academic groups around the world, the Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education will be showcasing items donated by various groups including Compassion in World Farming, IFAW, WSPA, OneKind and Animals Asia to highlight the importance of continuous education and lobbying on welfare issues and to connect veterinary students and staff here at the R(D)SVS with welfare issues around the world.
The items will be held in our Study Landscape, and will provide a focus on current and historical animal welfare issues, and the progress that has been made on improving animal welfare around the globe.
