Virtual UFAW Animal Welfare Conference

29th Jun 2021 - 30th Jun 2021

The field of animal welfare is a cross-disciplinary area of study that seeks to offer guidance and find solutions to the challenges raised by our caring for and interactions with both kept and wild animals. As part of UFAW’s on-going commitment to improving animal welfare through increased scientific understanding of animals’ needs and how these can be met, and following the success of our 2020 virtual conference, our 2021 conference – ‘Recent advances in animal welfare science VIII’ will also be a free to attend online event, held on 29-30th June 2021.
