The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $557,446 over two years to World Animal Protection (WAP) to support campaigns aimed at mobilizing the food industry to improve their chicken welfare standards. WAP plans to use these funds to develop and produce campaign materials, engage with key stakeholders, and support travel, research, and salaries.
