With goal to ensure animals are properly considered within global policymaking
Humanimal Trust, the charity founded in 2014 in the UK to advance One Medicine, has recently joined animal protection organizations worldwide in becoming an associate member of the World Federation for Animals (WFA).
According to an organizational release,1 the trust joins over 50 national, regional, and international animal protection organizations, including the RSPCA, Cruelty Free International and Compassion for World Farming.
“We are absolutely delighted to join the World Federation for Animals and can’t wait to unite with our fellow members from all parts of the world to ensure that animals are properly considered within global policymaking,” said Joe Bailey, CEO of Humanimal Trust, in the release.1
She added, “We exist to drive collaboration between vets, doctors, researchers, nurses and allied professions so that all humans and animals benefit from sustainable and equal medical progress, but not at the expense of an animal’s life. But we can’t expect others to collaborate if we as a charity aren’t prepared to do that ourselves. Collectively, we as members of the WFA, have an incredible opportunity to put the wellbeing of animals firmly on the international stage and finally get them the fairness, recognition and protection they need and deserve.”
“Having had the privilege of witnessing the remarkable work and ambition of Humanimal Trust, I am inspired by their unwavering commitment to utilizing humane science and ethics to truly transform the health and well-being of both humans and animals. We are thrilled to welcome Humanimal Trust as an Associate Member of WFA,” stated James Yeates, CEO of the World Federation for Animals, who made a recent appearance in the Humanimal Trust’s podcast series.1
