AWI brochure (2011)  Managing for Extinction

Since its founding in 1951, AWI has sought to alleviate the suffering inflicted on animals by people.

AWI's goals are to:

  • Abolish factory farms, support high-welfare family farms, and achieve humane slaughter for animals raised for food;
  • Improve the housing and handling of animals in research, and encourage the development and implementation of alternatives to experimentation on live animals;
  • End the use of steel-jaw leghold traps and reform other brutal methods of capturing and killing wildlife;
  • Preserve species threatened with extinction, and protect wildlife from harmful exploitation and destruction of critical habitat;
  • Protect companion animals from cruelty and violence, including appalling conditions in commercial trade; 
  • Prevent injury and death of animals caused by harsh transport conditions.
