Did you know that there is such a day as World Animal Day? And that this week is also ‘Be Kind to Animals Week’?
Each of us can make a big difference to animals. Rather than harping on about the state of animals around the world today I will let the wonderful initiatives that various people have founded to celebrate animals speak for themselves:
Check out the Be Kind To Animals Week website which is a bounty of resources for schools and others who simply wish to care for animals.
The top 10 ways to help animals according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). I don’t entirely agree with this list but it is good food for thought.
World Animal Day UK website – very cool site with lot’s of information!!
Check out the beautiful rescue animals – more than 300 – who live at Edgar’s Mission in Victoria, Australia! That will put a smile on your dial! There are similar projects all around the world which are testimony to the many animal lovers out there who wish to create a fairer place for all animals, human and non-human! And maybe somebody will get inspired to set one up right now.
And last but by no means least, please watch the wonderful Avian Behaviourist Josh Cook : Thinking Outside the Cage and showing us how we could engage in a beautiful two way relationship with birds.
Happy World Animal Day everybody!!!
