Animal Welfare Futures Conference - a great success
The Applied Animal Behaviour and Animal Welfare Master students (MSc AABAW) organised a one-day conference on Animal Welfare Futures, held at Easter Bush Campus on Thursday 14 February.
Their Programme Director, Dr Susan Jarvis, commented ‘that the students did an excellent job in organising a really interesting and thought provoking day’.
Issues relating to global use and production of animals, climate change, economics of animal welfare, future of animal welfare legislation and changing attitudes to animal welfare were all discussed in the question sessions and during the Panel discussions.
The speakers included: Harry Eckman, Mike Appleby, Alistair Stott, Christopher Wathes, Heather Bacon and Xavier Manteca (by Webinar).
Thanks to the speakers, staff from both the R(D)SVS and SRuC, everyone who attended and well done to the students!!
