In order to achieve IFAW’s vision of a world where animals are respected and protected, we follow key principles in our hands-on project with animals and in our advocacy work to secure better animal welfare protection in policy, legislation and society: It should be recognised that animals have intrinsic value and are sentient beings. Policy should be based on sound science within an ethical framework for animals. Conservation decisions should be guided by ecological sustainability and biological sustainability, the precautionary principle within an ethical framework for animals.
every problem has a solution, every solution needs support.
The problems we face are urgent, complicated, and resistant to change. Real solutions demand creativity, hard work, and involvement from people like you.
