Animals & Biodiversity
Think Tank Programme
The Global Animal Law GAL Association was founded in Zurich in 2016 and was born from the last thirty years of experience and conviction of attorney Dr. Antoine F. Goetschel. It aims to become the independent, worldwide pioneering authority for the health and protection of animals through the law.
Together with Dr. iur. Sabine Brels (Co-Founder) GAL has drafted the UN Convention on Animal Health and Protection ( UNCAHP ). GAL is of the opinion that the anchoring of animal protection in the UN is a central condition to achieve a better position for the dignity of animals worldwide. It is the vision of GAL that the possible use of healthy animals takes place with dignity and recognition of the value of the animals.
