Exciting times for animal welfare in India

It is really exciting times for animal welfare, with increasing political interest in the plight of animals in developing countries such as India where it is becoming increasingly clear that there is an important link between human and animal welfare.  
Environment minister Prakash Javadekar today said the government alone cannot ensure animal welfare and organisations from the country and outside should come forward to play crucial role in addressing the concerns:

"Since everything cannot be governmental, these efforts by various organisations, discussing important issues from across the world, are crucial for the welfare of animals," Javadekar said.

He was addressing 'Minding Animals Conference' hosted by Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) in collaboration with Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

We are very pleased to say that the Jeanne Marchig Centre was invited to talk about the work we are doing with the veterinary profession in India. Heather Bacon recently travelled to Delhi to attend the Minding Animals Conference where a large number of international animal welfare organisations and individuals interested in raising standards for animals across the world and she gave a paper on behalf of the Marchig Centre entitled, One Health – One Welfare.
