Since 1951, the Animal Welfare Institute has been dedicated to reducing animal suffering caused by people.

We seek better treatment of animals everywhere - in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home,
and in the wild.

International Whaling Commission (IWC) 65 in Slovenia

The 65th annual meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) opened on Monday, September 15th in the Slovenian city of Portorož. This is the first "plenary" IWC meeting since IWC64 in 2012 when the Commission decided to have biennial meetings, although its Scientific Committee continues to meet annually—and met in May in Bled, Slovenia.
