The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $100,000 to Griffith University to support a symposium on farm animal welfare in China in 2019 to be organized by Professor Deborah Cao, an expert on Chinese animal law, and to support Professor Cao’s work on a new book, in Chinese, about farm animal welfare. This is a renewal of our December 2016 grant, which helped Professor Cao organize a farm animal academic conference in Beijing in 2017 attended by 60 scientists, mostly from Chinese agricultural universities and research institutes.

This is a discretionary grant and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
