The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $48,324 to Animals Australia Federation to support trainings into the more humane treatment of pigs at slaughter in Indonesia, with an emphasis on Bali. Animals Australia Federation plans to use these funds to conduct a literature review to inform protocols, draft and reach an agreement on the protocols, and visit slaughterhouses to conduct trainings. According to Animals Australia Federation, nearly 400,000 pigs are slaughtered annually in Bali.

This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
