Why UFAW's Work is Important

Despite many advances in animal care and increasing concern about animal welfare, many animals still suffer unnecessarily due to our lack of understanding of their needs and how best to meet them. UFAW promotes essential study and education in animal welfare, developing practical and lasting solutions to welfare problems. See the following links for more information on some of the areas of concern and UFAW’s work to address these.
