Thank you for taking the time to complete this short questionnaire.

The new Wild Animal Welfare Committee (WAWC) was set up in September 2014 to provide independent advice and evidence about the welfare of free-living wild animals in the UK, aiming to reduce harm to animals and prevent suffering caused by human activity. One of the WAWC’s priorities at the outset is to seek the views of key stakeholders on its proposed remit.

We welcome your comments on the establishment of the WAWC and hope that we may count on your support. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

Please note that the questionnaire asks about the views and priorities of stakeholder organisations. However the WAWC is keen to have the views of individual respondents too, so please complete all the questions that are of interest to you. Individual responses will be analysed and taken into account along with those of organisations.
