Who we are
We are a partnership between the Animal Behaviour and Welfare team at SRUC and the Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh, UK. Edinburgh has a long history of excellence in research and education in animal welfare science: we have been conducting research in animal welfare for more than 40 years, and are home to the longest running MSc course in animal welfare in the world. Together we have expertise in animal welfare science, welfare assessment, animal behaviour recording and animal welfare education, both nationally and internationally. CAWSE brings together a collection of resources, such as fact sheets and videos, for policy makers, animal industry representatives and students who are interested in evidence-based animal welfare knowledge.
