How to feed the world sustainably through ethical animal welfare?

We seek to improve and better understand the clinical application of animal welfare and ethics throughout Australasia.

If our graduates are to be empowered to help industries respond to broader community concerns, universities need to address the issue of animal welfare and ethics when exploring how to feed the world sustainably.

Our research in the ethics of animal welfare aims to:

  • address global threats around food security and sustainability
  • offer students a cohesive, evidence-based approach to teaching and practising animal welfare and ethics
  • ensure emergent solutions for food sustainability are subjected to ethical scrutiny before being deployed
  • help industry respond to community concerns around food security and sustainability.
