During the month of August 2016, the Faculty of Agricultural and Veterinary
Medicine of Universidad de Las Americas (UDLA) with the support the
Veterinary Medicine Student Group Union organised a seminar on Animal
Welfare as part of the activities of UFAW LINK Scheme. The location was at
the Maipu Campus of UDLA in Santiago.

The focus of this seminar was to introduce the concept of animal welfare as
a multidisciplinary science. The audience was composed mostly by veterinary
medicine students, and staff of the Faculty. The first invited speaker was
Dr. Christian Ugaz, local farmed animal expert, who presented the history
and general concepts of animal welfare within the field of veterinary
science. The second talk was given by Dr. Hernan Cañon Jones from UDLA and
UFAW Link contact, who presented the current advances and difficulties in
animal welfare in fish and other aquatic animals.

The presentations were followed by a participative discussion on animal
welfare as a whole and the importance of animal welfare education for
veterinary students and in Chile.
