Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $86,900 over two years to the University of British Columbia’s Animal Welfare Program. Under Principal Investigator Dr. Daniel Weary, the grant supports research by Maria Chen on layer hen welfare in East Asia. The research will involve the identification of key stakeholders that can impact layer hen welfare at each stage of life, as well as the production of a report on welfare conditions and possible welfare improvements on large-scale farms.
This falls within Open Philanthropy's focus area of farm animal welfare.
