  • Panel discussions will dive into topics focused on companion animals, fisheries, wildlife and grantcraft
  • Watch the critcally acclaimed Sonic Sea Documentary at a wine social
  • Find out what’s going on with polar bears and penguins up north
  • Listen to perspectives on animals used in laboratory testing

The conference concludes with a special session at Harvard Law School where you will learn about its Animal Law and Policy Program, take a tour, and hear from experts about climate change, live export and farm animal campaigns worldwide.
