- Essere Animali
- Award Date:
- To support investigations and corporate campaigns on fish, chicken, and pig welfare in Italy.
Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of €420,000 ($462,974 at the time of conversion) over two years to Essere Animali to support investigations and corporate campaigns on fish, chicken, and pig welfare in Italy. Approximately 260 million farmed land animals and 140 million farmed fish are alive in Italy at any time. Essere Animali investigations at farms where fish, pigs, and chickens are raised and slaughtered have generated media coverage in Italy and elsewhere.
This follows Open Philanthropy's February 2019 support and falls within its focus area of farm animal welfare.
