Anima International is an umbrella of European organizations focused on improving welfare standards for farm animals through corporate and media outreach, undercover investigations, and legislative work.

History

Anima International evolved as a collaboration between the Scandinavian vegan advocacy group Anima and the Polish investigations group Open Cages [Otwarte Klatki]. After working together for a number of years, the organizations formally merged in 2018.[1] As of 2022, Anima International operates in seven different European countries.[2]
