Libby Anderson | Wild Animal Welfare Committee Conference 2019

In March 2019 the Wild Animal Welfare Committee (or WAWC) held a conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, which was framed around the question: “Who are the guardians of wild animal welfare?" Charlie Moores was invited to the conference by Libby Anderson, WAWC Secretary and animal charity OneKind's Policy Advisor, and they recorded the following conversation the next day which looks at the origins of WAWC and why so many wild animals (as separate from farmed, research, or companion animals) are not - at the moment anyway - protected by welfare legislation.
