Organization:
World Animal Protection
Award Date:
02/2019
Amount:
$1,200,000
Purpose:
To support work to advance farm animal welfare in China.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $1,200,000 over two years to World Animal Protection (WAP) to support work to advance farm animal welfare in China. World Animal Protection is supporting model pig farms to demonstrate higher welfare to large pig producers, and has secured China’s first corporate crate-free pledges for pigs. China is one of the world’s largest poultry producers, and WAP is now looking to take on similar work with a focus on chickens. WAP plans to use these funds to continue engaging with Chinese pig producers and supermarkets, and expand outreach to large-scale chicken producers and retailers.

This follows Open Philanthropy's October 2016 grant and falls within its focus area of farm animal welfare.
