Call for animal welfare in education
Animals play a significant role in children's lives from their family pets to their dinner plates. How humans care for and consider the lives of animals is central to reducing levels of suffering - both deliberate and through lack of knowledge.
Unfortunately not all children have families and friends who set good examples about respecting the lives of animals and being kind to animals doesn’t always come naturally. When children learn about animal welfare, they're more likely to enjoy healthy relationships with animals and people throughout their lives. By developing young people’s knowledge about the sentience of animals, we can inspire the next generation of animal lovers, creating a future that is kinder to animals
97 percent of school aged pupils said that learning about animals’ needs is important.
