UFAW is continuing to expand the content available on its website and the latest information to be added is a new section entitled ‘Why UFAW’s work is so important’. It is easy to forget that there is still so much to learn about the animals that we share our lives with – whether that is in our homes, on farms, within zoos, in the wild, or kept in laboratories – and continuing to support and learn about animals is a key part of being able to improve their welfare. The new section gives examples of areas where there are still welfare concerns, and shows how UFAW has helped to tackle such concerns. So far sections have been included on the welfare of farmed animals and of animals used in scientific testing and research. Sections currently under construction will cover animal welfare for companion, zoo and wild animals.
