One community making an impact
With you, World Animal Protection is helping all life thrive
The change we make for animals is backed by the best available science. We use our strong track record, global partnerships, and collaborative approach to move governments, corporations, communities, and individual consumers to protect animals.
With your support, we are making real and lasting change happen. Our commitment and belief that every animal deserves a life worth living is moving governments and multi-national corporations to make big changes for animals.
Together, we can change the world by changing the lives of animals. One by one.
Learn more about the science of animal protection
Our scientific experts from around the world help us build a strong evidence base for the changes we make for animals. Science shows that animals are sentient beings, meaning they think and feel.
Our views are rooted in our extensive research and we are the only Animal Welfare NGO to be awarded the UN’s general consultative status. This gives us the credibility and influence to bring about solutions that change opinions and actions of the world’s most influential entities.
Our most important role though is to help people understand more about the inner lives of animals and how our everyday actions have an impact.
How we use our research to make change?
Through research, reporting and campaigns we show the true interconnected impact of protecting animals. Our reports show how protecting animals also protects our environment, public health and our food system. For example, our research into roadside zoos across Ontario and our report, Nothing new at the zoo, resulted in concrete action: the Ontario PAWS inspectorate has filed charges against unsafe zoos.
Our report, Milking the cow: the fate of Canadian cull dairy cows, sheds light on the distressing conditions endured by these vulnerable animals. This report serves as a powerful tool in advocating for animals and driving positive change in the industry.
