Animals in the Wild

Across the globe wild animals are often kept as pets, used in entertainment, and used in traditional medicine, they are often taken from their natural habitat and subjected to inappropriate care and treatment.

This has a significant impact on the welfare of the individual animal and in some cases, the conservation of the species. The number of animals involved and the extent of suffering is often unclear. Scientific research is essential to provide the evidence which can support governments, global industry bodies, NGO’s and the various industries involved to work together to end practices which negatively impact the welfare of wild animals. This page explores the issues and how your expertise could help improve the welfare of wild animals.
