World Animal Day 2016 (October 4) Your Chance To Tell The World That Animals Matter

Every year, a huge variety of inspiring events are held around the globe. World Animal Day unites the animal welfare movement, mobilising it into a global force for change with no regard to nationality, religion, faith or political ideology. It’s the one day of the year that embraces all animals and the unique concerns of each, in every country.

What is World Animal Day?

www.worldanimalday.org.uk is a social movement to raise the status of animals and improve welfare standards around the globe. Animal welfare organisations, community groups, youth and children’s clubs, businesses and individuals organise events in celebration of this special day to draw attention to animal issues and make them front page news.

Why celebrate World Animal Day?

Throughout history, social movements like World Animal Day have been key in fighting for social justice and reform, with ground-breaking laws being passed in response.

The lives of animals are profoundly affected by the actions of individuals, businesses and nations.

It’s therefore essential that, as sentient beings, their rightful status as recipients of social justice is established and translated into effective animal protection.

Through increased awareness and education, we can help create a new culture of respect and sensitivity to make this world a fairer place for all animals. World Animal Day has already brought about a significant and lasting contribution towards advancing animal welfare standards, and its influence will continue to grow (there are a few examples in ‘Editors Notes’ below). World Animal Day Ambassadors Currently, there are 92 Ambassadors working in 74 countries, all of them keen to be part of this global movement to bring about change for animals.

Here’s what two Ambassadors have to say about World Animal Day: Otara Gunewardene, Sri Lanka –

“World Animal Day in Sri Lanka goes beyond celebrating one day. It is about education, creating awareness; influencing and inspiring young people to establish a world where harmonious co-existence with animals is a reality.”

Thomas Kahema, Tanzania –

“All that we do in celebration of World Animal day has been a big lesson to government, local communities and schools throughout the country. Many people now understand the reasons why it’s important for them to take the care of animals seriously.”

Celebrating World Animal Day unites the animal protection movement creating a global force to improve the lives of animals. Everyone who cares about animals can get involved and help the World Animal Day movement grow until it reaches and connects animal advocates in all corners of the globe.
