Animal Welfare Standards Project - 2019 Workshop
The Animal Welfare Standards Project held the first of its annual workshops in Beijing, China in August 2019.
Led by Professor Clive Phillips, but with much student involvement, the workshop held on 25-29 August aimed to provide students and staff attending with a deeper understanding of how to conduct animal welfare science and animal ethics reasoning. It included presentations on the main methods of welfare assessment, running experiments, different people’s perspectives in animal welfare and a detailed knowledge of the major welfare issues for the most commonly farmed animal species.
The workshops form part of the establishment of the first Sino-Australian Animal Welfare Centre and will focus on training a new generation of Chinese scientists to lead the way in improving animal welfare standards for livestock in China.
