Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of €270,000 ($297,291 at the time of conversion) over two years to Soko Tierschutz to support investigations and publicity on fish and poultry welfare in Germany and Eastern Europe. Approximately 150 million farmed birds and 20 million farmed fish are alive in Germany at any time. Soko Tierschutz investigations have generated media coverage in Germany and elsewhere.

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