Open Philanthropy recommended four grants totaling £3,648,000 over three years ($5,055,105 at the time of conversion) to Compassion in World Farming (CIWF) to support work on fish welfare and efforts to end the use of cages and crates for all farmed animal species in Europe. Our farm animal welfare team believes that these programs have built momentum and are well-positioned to seize the current window of opportunity in Europe.

This follows our September 2019 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
