Welfare of Wild Animals in Research

Following a successful first event held in 2015, the RSPCA and the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) are jointly convening a second one-day meeting on the welfare of wild animals in research - undertaken either in the wild or in captivity.

The meeting will take place on Thursday, 22 September 2016 in the south-east of England. The program will include presentations and discussion relating to reducing the impact of procedures in the field such as capture, trapping and tagging, and refining housing and care in captivity. It will also cover aspects of regulation and ethical review. You can register for this meeting by completing an online form.
