Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of £81,000 (approximately $109,552 at the time of conversion) to the University of Glasgow to support research on animal welfare led by Davide Dominoni. This funding will support research on the effects of urbanization and artificial light on birds’ welfare. The project was endorsed by the Wild Animal Initiative due to its potential to expand the field of welfare biology.

This grant was recommended by our farm animal welfare team.
