In China there are no animal protections laws, and the understanding of animal sentience and welfare is very basic. While society’s understanding of these terms is increasing slowly, professional stakeholders have the authority to really enhance the concepts of sentience, welfare and compassion if they lead by example.

That’s why ACTAsia invests in researching and identifying the most important stakeholders in our professional education program, and building long-lasting relationships. It is then our job to provide the information and the tools for our professional advocates (NGO volunteers, veterinarians, lawyers, social workers and more) to promote humane values through their day-to-day work with the public.
