Heather J Bacon




Using her veterinary skills and overseas experience (developed through her previous work with Animals Asia), Heather works with our partner organisations in India and China in providing animal welfare education and practical skills training to vets and veterinary undergraduates as well as to those responsible for animal care.

She has successfully run workshops in both China and India, and has worked hard to develop essential partnerships with the relevant local veterinary associations and NGO's, to further develop greater awareness, of the important role of the veterinarian, in promoting and advising on animal welfare in all industries.

Heather is also actively involved in both our post-graduate and undergraduate teaching here at the R(D)SVS, where students benefit from her international animal welfare experience and expertise.

Animal welfare has been described as a complex, multi-faceted public policy issue which includes important scientific, ethical, and other dimensions. Improving our understanding of animal welfare, involves the fascinating study of animal behavior as well as the challenge of accessing the emotions of animals.
