Online survey: Commission seeks the public's opinion on the EU policy on animal welfare

The European Commission would like to find out the opinion of EU citizens and stakeholders on the EU Policy on Animal Welfare and to that end it launched, on June 1, an online survey.

The evaluation is concerned with EU animal welfare actions over the 2000-2008 period and is being carried out with reference to farm animals, experimental animals, pet animals and wild animals, which are kept in captivity or submitted to a treatment that is controlled by humans.

The survey is intended for individuals and stakeholders and seeks their views on four types of EU action (legislation, research, communication and international activities). The survey will remain open until Friday, July 31.
