UNCAHP has a broad network throughout the world. It is only together that we are able to achieve great things!
World Animal Net (WAN) was established to improve communication and coordination among the world's animal protection organizations. Today, WAN is the world's largest network of animal protection organizations, with over 3'000 affiliates in more than 100 countries and they have Consultative Status at the United Nations. WAN works from offices in the United Kingdom, The Netherlands, the United States, and South Africa.
"We know now that the global health and welfare of humans, the environment, and animals is interlinked, with the health and welfare of one depending on the health and welfare of the other. Part of our own welfare is the acknowledgement of our dignity.
Through UNCAHP, the dignity of animals is given due regard too, a significant step forward in law in the human-animal relationship. Animal Voice and The Humane Education Trust give our whole-hearted support to UNCAHP and its pending adoption by the United Nations."
Louise van der Merve: GAL Expert in South African Animal Law, Founder of the Animal Voice Academy.
“As a partner of GAL, the Global Research Network’s Think Tank Programme on Animals & Biodiversity supports the debate and dissemination of the draft UN Convention on Animal Health and Protection, and is committed to working with GAL
to develop key principles of animal law.”
Dr Yoriko Otomo, Director of the Global Research Network
''The COVID-19 pandemic is a direct result of human recklessness relating to the use and abuse of animals and nature.
But at last the world seems to have woken up to the
interconnectedness of our planet.
To avoid future pandemics, the UN Convention on Animal Health and Protection (UNCAHP) is urgently needed, as it will work towards safeguarding the health and well-being of humans, animals,
and for the future of our planet.
We must come together in a collective effort and lend our voices to ensure the acceptance and adoption of UNCAHP at the highest levels''.
Pei Su, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of ACTAsia
The EFRLW is supporting UNCAHP as its purpose meets ours. That is, to:
"Promote, at the global level, a world where the human species lives in harmony with Nature and where the welfare and dignity of animals and ecosystems in general are fully recognized and respected. A world where humans interact in the ecosystem respecting natural laws and the principle of the interdependence of all living things."
José-Javier Paniagua, Chairman of the EFRLW
