Scotland’s Animal Welfare Education Forum (SAWEF) is a group of various organisations that all work within the education sphere to combat animal cruelty and increase animal welfare awareness. We all work together to improve animal and human communications and welfare in Scotland.
As part of SAWEF, we are focused heavily on education work within Scotland by means of educational talks, programmes and campaigns to improve the knowledge on and welfare of rabbits. We attend regular meetings with the other organisations to see how we can all best improve our education programmes and work together. We believe that education is the way to improve the lives of pet rabbits and reduce the large number of rabbits being given up.
Keep Up To Date
With the knowledge of rabbit care continually advancing, it's important to keep up to date with the latest information, studies and data being produced. Things are always changing and it's vital not to be stuck in old fashioned ways of thinking and be open minded to learning.
We undertake many studies here at BBBB and we are constantly furthering advancements on the understanding of rabbit behaviour and psychology. Often we will ask owners to partake in our studies and surveys.
The RWAF (Rabbit Welfare Association & Fund) have compiled a fantastic booklet for owners which is the "basic bunny bible". We highly recommend all owners to download a copy and have a read for vital tips and advice on rabbit care. You can download it here by clicking the button below.
Our posters. Our education team create great snappy educational posters focused on essential rabbit care tips. These can be viewed and downloaded belowto be shared on social media or be used in schools/vets etc.
We are always keen to work with other like-minded organisations so feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to work with us or connect with us.
If you would like us to attend an event/nursery/school/university/community to host one of our education programmes please get in touch and we can organise this with our education team.
We also provide up to date CPD training for vets/vet students/vet nurses who are interested in learning more and keeping up to date on the latest rabbit welfare information and welcome vet students to come and do work experience with us at the rescue itself. Educating those in the veterinary industry is also a highly important part of creating better care for rabbits and supporting owners.
