The main aim of Animals & Us is to create an awareness of the human-animal relationship in order to promote a more compassionate and caring reality for animals. Compelling, stimulating and engaging — these are just some of the ways teachers and students have described our Animals & Us resources.
Animals & Us is produced by Nichola Kriek and Brian Hainsworth. Kriek is a trained teacher who has worked as a humane educator since 1994. Hainsworth has worked within e-learning since 2014 and has a background in graphic design and teaching.
