A free online course on farm animal welfare (in Spanish) organised by the Latin American offices of the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) will take place from 5 May to 13 July 2014.
The course, which was first held last year, is tailored for professors and students of veterinary and animal husbandry faculties – among others – and for animal welfare professionals who want to learn more about the general concepts of welfare in animal production, with the aim of improving their knowledge and skills in animal welfare.
The course will take place over 10 weeks, from 5 May to 13 July 2014, and will be held entirely in Spanish, presenting general concepts of animal welfare in pigs, chickens, hens and cattle. The programme includes an introduction to animal welfare science, ethics and law.
You can find the full programme of the course – which is limited to 100 participants – on the Latin American WSPA website.
Last year I conducted the module on trade in animals and animal products, and I am pleased to confirm that this commitment will be renewed in the 2014 course.
Additional information is available on the Latin American WSPA website.
