My Code of Ethics
In order to deliver quality and professional outreach programs I strive to adhere to high standards of animal welfare, captive animal care, and public health & safety standards.
The 5 Freedoms of animal welfare
- Freedom from hunger and thirst, by ready access to water and a diet to maintain health and vigour.
- Freedom from discomfort, by providing an appropriate environment.
Freedom from pain, injury and disease, by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
- Freedom to express normal behaviour, by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and appropriate company of the animal’s own kind.
- Freedom from fear and distress, by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
