Happy New Year from the JMICAWE!

Here at the University of Edinburgh’s Jeanne Marchig international Centre for Animal Welfare Education, we’re looking forward to 2017, and to further developing our exciting projects and partnerships

We’ll continue to focus in the Asia-region with ongoing projects to improve free-roaming dog welfare in India and Sri Lanka in partnership with the Dogs Trust, but we’ll also be working a little closer to home with partnerships to improve welfare in animal shelters in both Gran Canaria and here in Edinburgh.

We’ve built strong links with veterinary schools in China, India, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam and hope to continue to develop these relationships to support veterinary skills developments and promote the role of the veterinary nurse in animal welfare. We’ll also be working on a new project to support improvements in farm animal welfare in China.

We’ll continue our project to improve zoo veterinary skills in China, Japan and Indonesia through collaborations with WAZA, CAZG, EAZA, Animals Asia and Wild Welfare.

We’re also excited to be working on our new Dog & Cat behaviour MOOC to be launched later this year.

2017 is shaping up to be a busy year – we hope that you’ll continue to support us in our endeavours!
