“Education for a new generation of New Zealanders about animal rights.”

Animals & Us is a groundbreaking education initiative provided by SAFE.

Our vision is that Animals & Us will advance knowledge and critical thinking about the relationship between human and non-human animals while fostering attitudes and values of compassion, respect and empathy.

The quality of the Animals & Us programme is guaranteed by SAFE’s ability to draw upon the knowledge of the most experienced animal advocates, and to combine this with the expertise of researchers, academics and teachers working in the area of human-animal studies.

It is hard to imagine such a project being better executed. It is sure to encourage future scientists and future animal advocates, and I commend it most highly.
