WAZA Conference launches animal welfare strategy

World Association of Zoos and Aquaria launches strategy for animal welfare

This month the World Association for Zoos and Aquaria (WAZA) launched two innovative new strategies at its annual conference in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Heather Bacon of the JMICAWE was pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to both the animal welfare and conservation strategies, and was also delighted to represent the JMICAWE as an invited plenary speaker on the topic of animal welfare, at the WAZA conference.
The new WAZA animal welfare strategy focuses on providing optimal welfare in the captive setting, using David Mellor’s Five Domains framework to support positive animal welfare.
