Review animal welfare standards around the world

We move governments to protect animals globally – improving animal welfare legislation is an essential part of our work

What is the Animal Protection Index?

The Animal Protection Index is a brand new interactive tool from World Animal Protection. We have ranked 50 countries worldwide on how well their legislation protects animals. Never before has a more comprehensive or ambitious project in animal protection been completed. Visit the Animal Protection Index website and interact with the results - you can access each country’s report and see how they perform on animal protection policy and legislation. 

Supporting global change for animals – a truly long term solution

The index provides the foundations for governments to improve animal protection standards. By reviewing legislation around the world, countries will be able to create a roadmap for change, helping to protect billions of animals worldwide. What’s more, through improving legislation, countries will help their people too. Treating animals well can improve public health, fight poverty, tackle climate change and protect the biodiversity of our planet. Only through strong legislation can this be achieved for the long term.  

Treating animals well can improve public health, fight poverty, tackle climate change and protect the biodiversity of our planet.
