AWSELVA 25 Year Celebration - Looking back on developments in animal welfare over the past quarter century

2nd December 2020

25th Year Anniversary 1995-2020 

Since 1995 AWSELVA has brought together experts from the fields of animal welfare science, ethics research, veterinary medicine, forensic science and the law to discuss, research and further ideas in these fields. Back in the 1990s practical animal welfare was a nascent subject area, under-represented in education courses and much lower down the agenda than it is now. By 2020 animal welfare and related subjects are popular courses and fundamental to mainstream veterinary education. Welfare has expanded beyond the veterinary field and is relevant to many related fields, all inputting and furthering our knowledge and directly benefitting the animals in our care. The founders of AWSELVA were pioneers of adding welfare to the veterinary curriculum and bringing together the various fields that contribute to the practical improvement of animal keeping and our interactions with animals.
