June 16, 2021Lu Shegay

Institute of Animal Law of Asia successfully held the webinar with Maddy Dawe, the Campaigns Coordinator of The Humane League UK. This webinar is the public event under the project "Enhancing Legal Regulations for Aquatic Animals in Kazakhstan," the project of our Managing Director within the Global Ambassador Program.

In this presentation, Maddy discussed how aquatic animals have the capacity to suffer much like our companion animals, and the welfare issues associated with our consumption of fish and other aquatic species. She also talked about the importance of urgently protecting aquatic animals in the legal system, the current situation for aquatic animals in UK law, and how The Humane League UK is working to change the lives of fish for the better.
