The Animal Conservation and Welfare Foundation (ACWF) was created to balance the urgent animal conservation issues with animal welfare.
Animal conservation organizations often don't include animal welfare issues and the same goes for animal welfare NGO's, so this organization is designed to bring the two issues together to benefit the animals.
The ACWF is a sister organization of Campaigns Against the Cruelty to Animals (CATCA), which is based in Canada and has been working for over 23 years for the animals at an international level.
Our sister organization webpage link is: www.catcahelpanimals.org
The ACWF is a continuation of our international animal work as CATCA.
One main goal is to help stop the mass slaughter of African elephants for their ivory tusks, the seal hunt for their fur and Omega 3 oil, the brutal killing of sharks worldwide for their fins, exposing the ruthless wildlife e-trade, so on, before all these magnificent animals go down the path toward extinction.
It is also very important for us to get the animals protected by animal welfare legislations, to avoid their unnecessary suffering caused by humans, or by the lack of adequate laws or local/national enforcement authorities that fail to protect them as living beings.
Mostly we work influencing decision makers at national and international levels and through education.
We work very hard to learning all the facts on each animal issue before we take action, in order to be effective and bring some positive results to the animals.
Our Board of Directors is formed with well known animal welfare and animal conservation people, with decades of experience in these issues.
Our President has more than three decades of experience dealing with animal conservation and animal welfare issues.
She has worked in Europe and North America and her current projects and campaigns are:
We are based in Poznan, Poland in Central Europe.
Since we already deal with many animal issues all over Europe, it was just a matter of time until we had our HQ there. For that purpose, we chose Poznan as our strategic HQ for our animal work in Europe.
