Educate Youth on Animal Welfare

by South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance

Summary

The welfare of wildlife lies in the hands of the youth. Through education the youth will be able to save animals from exploitation and ultimately extinction. Donators will assist us in being able to sponsor more schools to visit us. As well as enabling us to start up and maintain an educating team with an age appropriate message to visit schools all over the world so that we can reach more youth.

Challenge

Due to Canned Hunting, deforestation, the bush meat trade and the growing wildlife/exotic pet industry our Wild Animals face a dim future. Of the 44,838 species assessed worldwide using the IUCN Red List criteria, 905 are extinct and 16,928 are listed as threatened to be extinct. Millions of species still need to be assessed to know their status. Scientists estimate that 150-200 species of plant, insect, bird and mammal become extinct every 24 hours.

Solution

Through Education everything is possible. Forming the minds while they are young will result in ethical and caring adults. Through this they will help us slow the process of extinction and ultimately turn it around. By learning from past generations mistakes they can stop the Pet-Play-and-Pay Industry which often leads to Canned hunting. Put a halt on all animal circuses, pass laws to forbid exotic/wild animals as pets, stop the bush meat trade and deforestation.

Long-Term Impact

World leaders who are compassionate towards animals, as well as the environment. An obvious decline in the extinction of species and a growth in numbers for animals on the endangered list. A noticeable increase in the number of animals living in the wild. Stricter and harder enforced laws protecting wildlife from humans.
