The Foundation is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission and was established as a trust separate from the Panel for general fundraising and transacting of monies. The Panel does not handle monies.
The Panel is a national body promoting the welfare of animals by intervening direct with counsel and solicitors in the courts to save animals or challenge the exploitation of their vulnerability, whether by industry, government, a research institution or municipal council. It is an active advocate of law reform and arranges the defence of protestors.
The distinguishing feature of the Panel is that it is not confined to public education campaigns: it is proactive with the legal armoury to intervene to potentially stop or affect a threat to the welfare or lives of animals, whether a single life or by the thousands or millions.
If you wish to support the groundbreaking work of BAWP, you can make a monthly, reoccurring donation to the Barristers Animal Welfare Panel Foundation here.
Reoccurring, monthly donations for not less than $5.
The Foundation is authorised to receive monies (including membership subscriptions) from residents in all States and Territories of Australia and overseas, with the exception of residents in Queensland.
