UFAW reaches its 100th LINK

16 May 2018

In recent years, UFAW has increased its activities supporting and promoting the advancement of animal welfare science and animal welfare around the world working as the International Animal Welfare Science Society. A vital part of its global outreach programme is the LINKs Scheme, which enables UFAW to support and promote the advancement of animal welfare and animal welfare science around the world, helping the charity to build capacity and share knowledge and best practice.

Through the LINKs, UFAW promotes its work and grant opportunities and encourages welfare linked educational and other activities for the students and staff at academic institutes around the world. Thank you to those members and supporters who donated to last year’s Spring Appeal to help the charity build more international LINKs - with the acceptance of a LINK at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Teramo, Italy, UFAW is pleased to announce it has now established LINKs at 100 Universities.

Looking ahead, UFAW aims to further develop its efforts to build capacity in animal welfare science worldwide.
