Example text

The world currently faces a major challenge. There are over six billion of us humans and the population is still growing very rapidly. For animals of our body size we have biologically unprecedented rates of energy utilization (Kirkwood, 2001). On a small planet with a finite annual productivity of organic matter (food) limited largely by the sunlight falling on it, we are, whether we like it or not, in competition with many other species. e. 20 per cent) of this is appropriated by humans (Imhoff et al, 2004).

I think it is helpful, in this way, to reserve the use of the word ‘welfare’ to address feelings rather than using it to include health also. How an animal feels can be influenced by its state of health and by its environment, so these are of course often central to the subject of animal welfare, but it seems to me that there is much to be gained and nothing to be lost by keeping the meanings of the terms health and welfare distinct in this way. To be sentient is to have the capacity to feel (in the sense defined above) something.

Sentience: Solo to symphonic My view about animal welfare is in line with the sentiment behind the agreement reached by the European Heads of State at their Amsterdam Summit in June 1997 (see above), though it is not, as I will discuss later, in line with what it actually says. For me, concern for an animal’s welfare is concern for its feelings – concern for the quality of its life as it experiences it. ) Thus, it seems to me that welfare is: ‘The balance, now or through life, of the quality of the complex mix of subjective feelings associated with brain states induced by various sensory inputs and by cognitive and emotion processes’ (Kirkwood, 2004a).
