Naturewatch is a non-profit campaigning organisation mainly involved in political lobbying. The organisation works strictly with in the democratic system; condemns all illegal activity and believes that an evolutionary approach is better than a revolutionary one.
Naturewatch Foundation supports the improvement and development of animal welfare standards mainly in Eastern Europe, with a particular focus on pioneering projects that directly improve the lives of animals.
Here is a brief overview of some of the campaigns we are working on:
Stop the Badger Cull in England: Defra consistently claims its cull policy is scienceled, yet the scientific legitimacy of culling badgers has been relentlessly questioned by highly respected scientists, conservationists and Government bodies. An ever-growing mountain of scientific evidence proves that culling will cost farmers more than it saves them and spread TB into new areas.
Compassionate Shopping Guide: For over 20 years the Naturewatch Compassionate Shopping Guide has been the definitive guide to cruelty free shopping for cosmetics, toiletries and household cleaning products. The current edition, (13th) highlights genuinely cruelty-free companies and also puts the spotlight on companies that continue to use newly developed ingredients that have been tested on animals.
UK Dog Welfare: We are working to address the issue of Dog Welfare in the UK via three key elements: Puppy Farming, Dangerous Dogs and Irresponsible Dog Ownership.
Stray Dog Welfare: For the last 15 years, Naturewatch Foundation has been actively developing projects throughout Eastern Europe, working with municipalities and state veterinary services to implement humane and sustainable stray dog population management schemes.
Animal Experiments: Naturewatch is committed to reducing the number of animals used and, ultimately, seeing animals replaced with hi- tech, non-animal tests which are not only humane but also more economical, and can provide results faster.
Neither organisation receives no government funding so they rely entirely upon the generosity of our supporters and the general public to continue our work.
