Governments are critical stakeholders for improving animal welfare. They can decide the fate of millions of animals. The COVID-19 pandemic presented a situation in which governments reacted in widely divergent ways, some leading to successful feeding programs and care for vulnerable animals, and others resulting in great suffering and loss. In this session, government representatives from Mexico, Africa and India will discuss how they were able to mobilize effectively and improve the lives of thousands of animals.
Humane Society International’s Global Animal Issues Track is tailored for attendees outside the United States. These sessions offer solution-based presentations for issues often seen in countries lacking significant animal welfare infrastructure or awareness.
