Monday 19 April 2021 from 08:45-17:00 hrs UK time, online
This online event will include sessions on:
Safeguarding wild animal welfare using the Five Domains approach
The contextual nature of how we value wild animals
Evaluation of wild animal welfare
Interactions between animal welfare, species conservation and management, and human issues
Speakers setting out to answer our three questions - Wild Animal Welfare: Does it matter? Can it be assessed? How can it be optimised?
The event will be chaired and moderated by members of the WAWC, a Scottish registered charity that provides independent advice and evidence about the welfare of free-living wild animals in the UK, aiming to reduce harm to animals and prevent suffering caused by human activity. For this online event. we particularly look forward to hearing views from around the world – making connections, contrasts and comparisons about how we interact with the sentient individuals who share our different environments.
