EU regional animal welfare training continues


Poland became the most recent country to host the European Commission’s training workshop on ‘Animal Welfare for the Veterinary Practitioner’.

These courses are held in partnership with the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe and Heather of the JMICAWE has collaborated for the last two years to deliver training in captive wildlife welfare to veterinarians in Spain, Latvia, and Romania.

In cooperation with the Plock Zoo and colleagues, animal welfare education was delivered to 62 delegates from Poland and the surrounding region. Feedback surveys indicate that almost 90% of delegates found the workshop useful or very useful. As zoos across the EU come under increasing scrutiny, it is essential that animal welfare is a priority for them.
