One Welfare Phoenix is a new project designed to to support the sustainable development goals and global reduction of violence by supporting the production and dissemination of practical guides to professionals to help identify and report the link between animal and human abuse and neglect, including the relation to their environment.
The project will bring together collective expertise across the world to develop global free access guidance for veterinary, medical and social services professionals as well as the public on section 1 of the One Welfare Framework, the link between animal and human abuse and neglect, providing a flexible space for local contacts, to be built into the guidance by local groups.
Why a Phoenix? We were inspired by the deep symbolic significance and the beauty, power and inner strength of the Phoenix bird emerging from the fire and ashes magnificent and strong.
We are currently reviewing applications received by organisations and individuals that would like to join the project advisory board and/or contribute with technical expertise, administrative/logistical support or sponsorship.
We will announce the new Advisory Board in due course.
