The hashtag for the conference, for sharing content, is #UFAW2021

The event is a 2 day event and you will need to register for each day if you wish to attend both. This virtual event is free to attend but if you are able to do so, please consider making a donation to UFAW to enable us to continue our vital work. We understand that these are difficult and uncertain times but, as a charity, UFAW relies on donations and legacies to continue. Conferences and seminars form an important part of our charitable activities by improving animal welfare through increasing knowledge and understanding. Your donation will help us to keep promoting ‘Science in the Service of Animal Welfare’ and help us to offset some of the costs of making this event free for everyone to attend. Thank you.

For those who are unable to attend the 'live' event, recordings of the talks will be available after the event. A link to register to watch these will be posted after the conference.
