RSPCA Animal Welfare Seminar 2022
Animal welfare in a changing climate
Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 February 2022
Extreme weather events, prolonged droughts, fires and floods are devastating impacts of climate change that affect countless numbers of animals be they wildlife, farm animals or our pets. Species’ extinction, the mass death of animals, feed and habitat loss, and recovery and conservation are often foremost in people’s mind when these events occur, but animal welfare is often overlooked.
The RSPCA Animal Welfare Seminar 2022 challenged speakers to focus on the animal welfare impacts of these events. The Seminar examined the devastating effects of climate-induced events, approaches to managing animals in disasters, and adaptations and actions required to help address climate change and build resilience in our natural world and the animals in our care.
The RSPCA Animal Welfare Seminar 2022 was held online on the afternoons of Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 February 2022 and triggered some lively discussion and debate.
