How can I help?

There are many ways that you can help to improve the welfare of turkeys:

Top ways to help

  • Buy higher welfare turkey that meets Animal Welfare Approved, Global Animal Partnership, or Certified Humane standards. If these options are not available, buy USDA Organic or free-range turkey.
  • Request organic or free-range turkey in restaurants.
  • Speak to the manager of your local supermarket and request that they stock only higher welfare turkey.
  • Choose to Eat Plants For a Change by participating in Meatless Mondays.
  • Encourage friends and family to buy certified higher welfare, organic, or free-range turkey.
  • Check the content of ready meals and turkey products. Buy products that contain free-range or organic turkey. Ask your local retailer to stock products containing higher welfare turkey.
  • Contact your local newspaper, radio, and TV station and ask them to carry a feature on turkey welfare.
  • Join Compassion in World Farming with a monthly gift or donation to support our work
