‘Welfare of wolves’ goes to International Canine conference

As part of the International Conference on Canines in Germany this October, Raincoast’s Dr. Paul Paquet will be speaking on the need to apply animal welfare considerations to wildlife.  Raincoast has been vocally advocating that issues like declining food availability and habitat security cause stress, hunger and starvation and as such should be part of decisions making considerations.

At the conference, internationally renowned experts and researchers will be talking on ecological, behavioral, social and genetic aspects of various canines such as Wolf, Dog, Maned Wolf, Golden Jackal, African Wild Dog, the Coyote and many more.

Wolf & Co 5th International Symposium on Canines 2011 from October 28-30 Nümbrecht, Germany

Strong partnerships are integral to our success.

Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains.
