RSPCA Australia's Animal Welfare Seminars are an annual event - with much lively debate - bringing together key experts in animal welfare research.

  Next Seminar


The next Animal Welfare Seminar is “FELINE FUTURES: Exploring Humane Domestic Cat Management in Australia” and will be held on April 16th 2020 in Melbourne.

In 2020, we will be exploring the future of humane domestic cat management in Australia.

Widespread humane and effective management of owned, unowned and semi-owned cats remains elusive, despite significant effort and investment of resources by some stakeholders to address the issue.

Are stricter laws the best solution or can we do more collectively through better communication and collaboration?

RSPCA’s Animal Welfare Seminar 2020 will bring together diverse stakeholders from government, industry, animal welfare, academia, cat owners/carers and the wider community to share knowledge and experiences to identify key challenges and opportunities to achieve more humane management of domestic cats.

Join the conversation at FELINE FUTURES: Exploring Humane Domestic Cat Management in Australia, on Thursday 16 April 2020 in Melbourne!
