Building a Kinder World for Animals: An Introduction to Animal Welfare & Ethics for Middle Schoolers
Time & Location
Are you a budding animal advocate in Grades 5-8?
Join us for this exciting new program exploring current animal welfare topics! With the help of Unity's animal residents, we will learn about issues such as using animals for food, fur, fibers, and feathers; for medical, cosmetic, and industrial testing; and for work and entertainment. Our goal is to educate young people and empower them to make more compassionate and ethical decisions, while learning how to advocate effectively for animals everywhere! Successful completion will allow students to take part in future junior conversations in animal welfare at the sanctuary. The program is overseen by Unity’s Humane Education Director, Marla Andrews, who can be contacted with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will meet outdoors or in the carriage shed if it's raining. Masks must be worn at all times, as well as: closed-toe shoes, work boots, or rubber boots; long pants; and raincoats if bad weather. After registering, we will send more information and a work/Covid waiver form.
Dates: Tuesdays, September 15th, 22nd, 29th (rain or shine!)
Cost: $50.00 total for the three sessions.*
Spaces are limited!
