Universal Declaration for Animal Welfare (UDAW)

IFAW campaigning for the Universal Declaration for Animal Welfare

It is shocking to consider that even now there is no global, intergovernmental recognition of the importance of animal welfare legislation. IFAW believes this must change, which is why we support the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare (UDAW). The adoption of this formal declaration at the UN General Assembly would establish animal welfare on the global political agenda.

The declaration process was originally launched by the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) in 2000. IFAW is part of the UDAW steering committee and is collaborating with other animal organisations in support of the Declaration.

The Declaration is an important way for governments to express their commitment to protecting animal welfare and is a vital springboard to changes in international and national policies and animal legislation. It would help strengthen enforcement of animal welfare measures and promote humane treatment of animals in every corner of the world.

The world was created with Animals in it.
Genesis stated that Man should take care
of other creatures... it is Man's responsibility
to take care of other creatures and not the other way round.
Always Provide, Prevent and protect the rights of Animals.

we must remind other humans that protecting animals is a massive responsibility,but one that rewards everyone with a richer,more meaningful life.

Mesdames et Messieurs les "puissants", savez-vous que sur cette planète où nous sommes interdépendants, vous êtes minuscules. Vous avez le pouvoir ( à court terme) soit continuer la destruction, soit recoller les morceaux. Il est encore temps. Merci pour les autres animaux. J.Poste

C'est une évidence, protéger ce qu'il y a de plus faible, vulnérable et à notre merci est un devoir. Les Hommes ont des droits, des lois pour les protéger, les animaux eux n'ont rien, ils subissent notre cruauté, notre barbarie, notre manque de morale et notre sadisme en silence, dans l'indifférence la plus totale. Ils méritent que nous leurs donnions cette voix qu'ils n'ont pas.
Il m'est difficile d'admettre qu'une Loi aussi importante, aussi juste, ne soit toujours pas appliquée à ce jour...
