It’s always inspiring to see professionals from a variety of fields coming together to achieve positive results for animals. That’s why I was more than enthused to attend the 3rd Annual Animal Abuse Summit in my community.
On September 21, 2014, the historic People's Climate March brought some 400,000 people to the streets (with numerous marches in solidarity around the world) and WAN is proud to have been among them. Marchers aimed to show the United Nations that climate matters and to encourage the organization to take strong action on climate change at the 2014 Climate Summit, attended by heads of state.
On June 5, the first joint US/China Animal Law forum was hosted at the University of Houston- Downtown (UHD), in partnership with the Northwest China University of Politics and Law and the South Texas College of Law.
The WAN blog allows us to share our expertise in the fields of policy, science, communications, management, and more in a manner that animal protection organizations can easily incorporate into their everyday work for animals. The blog also provides the opportunity to highlight important work of individual organizations and campaigns, and allows researchers, experts, and others outside of WAN to provide useful information to the animal protection community.
