“We believe in a compassionate and empathy-based approach to animal welfare, because all animals in our care deserve our compassion and protection.”
Wild Welfare are tackling these issues in a professional and strategic manner, getting to the heart of the problem to ensure a happy, long-term future for all captive wild animals.
Wild welfare continually excel in their provision of expertise to improve the welfare of captive wild animals, developing improvements which have a positive impact on all animals within facilities they work with, and in the development of positive working relationships with government officials and regional zoo associations.
Achieving high welfare standards in developing countries may be challenging, but it’s definitely not impossible. Wild Welfare’s audit system is set up in a way that makes it easy to recognize shortcomings and addresses potential issues in an objective and solution-focused manner. Their way of working was very professional, thorough and helpful for our organisation and they gave us materials to do our own welfare checks, which was extremely helpful to keep improving our animal welfare standards.
Wild Welfare is vital to ensuring that the global zoo and aquarium community focusses on positive animal welfare in all circumstances, in all countries.
I very much support the efforts of Wild Welfare in taking the initiative to improve animal welfare standards in many zoos and countries that would otherwise not get such assistance.
I believe that Wild Welfare, with support from the zoo community, is very well placed to address the welfare issues in those substandard zoos that are willing to accept guidance.
