Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $100,000 to Griffith University for Professor Deborah Cao, an expert on animal law, to provide a scholarship for a PhD candidate to study farm animal welfare. The funding will also support a survey of farm animal industry workers, which aims to gauge workers’ attitudes toward farm animal welfare and inform future advocacy efforts.

This follows our October 2018 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

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.
