Abstract/Summary There are many ways by which animal welfare can be improved and animal suffering reduced, such as by means of legislative enactment, scientific research, or better stockmanship. Education has an important role to play in each component of this package of means, and in this book, education is regarded in the broad sense of creating awareness and facilitating change. In relation to each component of the package, education can contribute to enhancing the welfare of individual animals, which is important, as well as result in better animal welfare generally. The book comprises two separate, but inter-related, components. First, a number of specific themes in relation to which education can play an important role in reducing animal suffering are considered, and subsequently a number of different though often interrelated contexts in which the educational themes can be addressed to reduce animal suffering are examined.
