Our 3rd Session Animal Welfare Innovations

Can we truly tell what our birds are feeling? Do we judge it by healthy weight gains, or activity levels? Is it a combination of behaviour and activity? When it comes to animal welfare, what does the science say, and what is your experience?  

Guest Speaker:  Dr. Georgia Mason, University of Guelph Campbell Centre for the Study of Animal Welfare.  She is a is a behavioural biologist who studies how animals adapt to captive housing conditions (or fail to), especially conditions that meet their physiological needs but are too small or monotonous to allow natural behaviour. She is also interested in the validation of animal welfare indicators.

When it comes to animal welfare, what does the science say, and what is your experience? Join in the lively conversation!

Cost $20.00 for the session, students $10.00.
