The European Parliament Intergroup on the Welfare and Conservation of Animals
The Intergroup on the Welfare and Conservation of Animals is the focal point for animal welfare in the European Parliament. It is open to all MEPs that are eager to debate and promote this policy issue. The Intergroup provides updates and background information on animal related issues which are being discussed within the Institutions and raises awareness about burning conservation issues on a global level. The monthly 1 hour meetings, usually organized on Thursday mornings during the Plenary sessions in Strasbourg invite experts, stakeholders, rapporteurs and members of the European Commission and member states to exchange views on topical animal welfare issues. Such in depth debates are often difficult to organize in the EP committees which have to deal with a very large number of different dossiers.
