Compassion in World Farming Trust (CIWF Trust) Conference

Delegates from around the globe gathered at the CIWF Trust Conference in March (2005) to address the subject of animal sentience and our relationship with them.

Speakers at the conference emphasized on the abundant evidence that animals are not devoid of feelings and emotions.

Professor Marc Bekoff, of the University of Colorado, US, said, "And what animals feel matters very much as they try to negotiate their lives in a human-dominated and often abusive world, in which they are mere pawns in our incessant and obsessive attempts to control their lives for our and not their benefit."
