The Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education


The JMICAWE aim is to improve the quality of life for all animals through education, training and by influencing policy at the highest level.

I believe that enhancing the animal welfare science content and incorporating more opportunity for ethical debate within veterinary education will give veterinary graduates the skills, knowledge and confidence to contribute positively to discussion on animal welfare issues.

The JMICAWE will actively seek to make determined progress towards a situation where enhancement of animal welfare is an international priority and where the boundaries of what is currently legally acceptable will be constantly challenged for the benefit of animals. We hope to achieve far-reaching changes in people’s attitudes and knowledge through instruction and training at all levels.
