Who we work with

Progress is greater when we work together!

We are part of two international coalitions working on creating change for farmed chickens and for aquatic animals.

Open Wing Alliance

Animals Aotearoa is a member of the Open Wing Alliance (OWA), a global coalition of more than 80 organisations in 63 countries, working to end the caging of hens for egg production and improve the lives of chickens bred raised for meat.

OWA member organisations are from all regions of the world – Africa, Asia, Europe, North and Latin America and Oceania, all with the shared purpose of ending the suffering of chickens worldwide. 

We are changing the way the world’s biggest companies treat animals and setting a new standard for corporate animal welfare policies locally—in every major market—and globally. 

In addition to launching coordinated global campaigns, we share campaign strategies, tactics, and resources around the world as a unified front to improve the lives of chickens.

Aquatic Animal Alliance

Created by the Aquatic Life Institute, the Aquatic Animal Alliance is a coalition of advocacy organisations that believe aquatic animals should have lives free of suffering.

The Aquatic Animal Alliance unites around 110 members – animal nonprofits and a network of scientists and fish welfare experts – around a common goal of decreasing aquatic animal suffering. 

We add our collective voice to initiatives, share research insights, and coordinate campaigns as part of a cohesive, multi-pronged, worldwide movement. This work takes place via collective lobbying of decision-makers at various levels (local, national, and international), the development of “asks” as a coalition, ensuring the advancement of the most robust welfare standards and engagement with certifiers and other key decision-makers to implement these standards.
