Organisation profile

The Animal Welfare Arena engages with animal owners, industry and policy makers to drive change and make a measurable improvement to the welfare of animals through distinctive, impactful and meaningful quality research and knowledge exchange activities. We specialise in finding answers to emerging issues in the animal sector and work in collaboration with industry to find solutions to these, which can be implemented in the ‘real-world’. Promoting positive animal welfare underpins all we do, specialising in research and knowledge exchange related to animal behaviour, animal performance and production, animal health and human-animal interaction.
