Animal Welfare and Ethics Society

The Animal Welfare and Ethics Society aims promote awareness of animal welfare concerns.

Description

The Animal Welfare and Ethics Society (AWES) aims to raise awareness of current issues in domestic and international Animal-Human relations. Our goals are to provide a platform for students to voice their concerns or opinions on animal welfare topics; present opportunities to volunteer or fundraise for Animal Welfare Societies, and to take meaningful action on current animal welfare issues.

Asides from awareness campaigns, we hope to hold fortnightly documentary and movie nights; excursions to animal-related facilities such as companion animal shelters, wildlife rehabilitation centres and agricultural operations; and to host expert speakers on animal welfare and ethical issues.
