Government and Policy
We engage with government authorities, public representatives and policy-makers in China to encourage them to protect animals in China’s zoos and safari parks from neglect and abuse.
We advise government authorities such as the China Association of Zoological Gardens and the China Wildlife Conservation Association on animal welfare regulations, and work with them to provide training in animal welfare concepts for animal management staff.
Through this partnership, we deliver animal welfare presentations and workshops to animal managers and vets at Chinese facilities. The positive dialogue with these authorities has resulted in a number of opportunities to propose new initiatives and encourage sharing of best practice from zoos around the world.
