The Animal Welfare Collaborative (TAWC)

is a non-partisan, university-led ‘knowledge broker’

for animal welfare.

We all care about animals and want the best lives possible for them.

We believe that by working together, we can improve the welfare of animals.

We bring together a wide variety of people

who work with and care about animals, and collaboratively we design a better future for them.

The Animal Welfare Collaborative helps to create the future of animal welfare by

Encouraging all of society to contribute ideas on how to improve animal welfare
Making the science of animal welfare easily accessible
Facilitating the adoption of best practices in animal welfare
Creating opportunities for productive collaboration among those interested in animal welfare

The Animal Welfare Collaborative is funded by The University of Queensland and is powered by the enthusiasm and tireless efforts of researchers across Australian universities. We work closely with all industry, academic, animal welfare and community groups, as well as Federal, State and Territory Governments and members of the public.

Evidence for Decisions that Matter

We harness the most rigorous animal welfare science into easy-to-use briefs and tools that can inform best practice decisions in animal management and proactive policy decisions.

Knowledge Broker

We want everyone in Australia to have access to accurate and comprehensive information about animal welfare. We provide the Australian community with balanced scientific information in accessible and engaging formats.

Society Driven

We actively listen to community, industry and government concerns about animal welfare and facilitate productive, evidence-based dialogue among all parties.

Sustainable Solutions

We work across sectors to facilitate the adoption of short- and long-term strategies to improve animal welfare and ensure sustainability over the years to come.
