Welcome to the website of the Wild Animal Welfare Committee (WAWC)

The WAWC was set up in September 2014 to provide independent advice and evidence about the welfare of free-living wild animals in the UK, aiming to reduce harm to animals and prevent suffering caused by human activity.

WAWC members sit in a personal capacity.

The Committee receives a secretariat service from OneKind animal protection charity.
