The inaugural International Conference on Dog Population Management begins today in Great Britain. The four-day conference brings together members of the public, ecologists, economists and specialists in animal welfare, animal health and education to discuss humane and sustainable strategies for addressing global street dog issues.
"This important conference will provide a unique opportunity for organisations and individuals from all parts of the world involved in humane dog population management to come together and share expertise and experience," said Mark Jones, veterinarian and executive director Humane Society International UK. "Humane Society International is proud to be a sponsor, co-host and contributor."
Goals of the conference include: development of a coordinated and interdisciplinary approach to dog population management; increased awareness of novel technologies for countries and research groups; dissemination of the results of research and practical applications between scientists, stakeholders and policy makers; and introduction of more effective and economic methods of managing zoonotic disease.
Conference organisers include Food and Environment Research Agency, the World Health Organisation, the World Organisation for Animal Health, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the World Society for the Protection of Animals, the International Fund for Animal Welfare and HSI.
