Humane Slaughter Association donations received
This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of December 2019. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Recipient plans to use this grant to translate its guides on humane handling, transport, stunning, and slaughter into Mandarin Chinese and publicize the translated publications in Chinese agriculture industry magazines. It also plans to pay for HSA staff to travel to China to lecture at veterinary universities and train staff at slaughterhouses and livestock markets, and invite Chinese officials for an expenses-paid study tour of slaughterhouses and livestock markets in the United Kingdom. Donor is excited about this project’s potential to reduce suffering and institutionalize farm animal welfare values.

|Open Philanthropy Project||2,528,678.00||2017-06||Animal welfare/fish welfare/crustacean welfare/cephalopod welfare||https://www.openphilanthropy.org/focus/us-policy/farm-animal-welfare/humane-slaughter-association-fish-welfare||Lewis Bollard ||Grant to support research to improve the welfare of farmed fish, decapod crustaceans (crabs, lobsters), and/or coleoid cephalopods (cuttlefish, octopus, squid). Grant made in light of perceived lack of fish welfare efforts relative to importance of the issue. The funding will allow HSA to seek proposals for research to improve the welfare of farmed fish, decapod crustaceans (crabs, lobsters), and/or coleoid cephalopods (cuttlefish, octopus, squid), and to translate related HSA publications. This work may take several years depending on the nature of the research applications received. Announced: 2017-11-08.
