What else do we do?

Wild Welfare has ongoing projects with a number of individual zoos across the world. Independent of our regional association and partnership work, these projects usually develop when facilities reach out for our support, either as a response to criticism or because they want to improve welfare for their animals. Current projects include with zoos in Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Japan, where we are committed to helping facilities for however long it takes to address welfare concerns and achieve positive change for animals.
From conducting welfare assessments in zoos and delivering hands-on training with zoo staff to developing educational materials, addressing legislation gaps in wild animal welfare governance and carrying out research, our work is varied and vast, but is absolutely focussed on improving welfare for wild animals living in captivity around the world.
