À l’occasion de la Journée mondiale des animaux, IFAW met à l’honneur l’éducatio

Plus jeune déjà, j’étudiais des volumes entiers de l’Encyclopædia Britannica pour découvrir les trésors du règne animal. C’est cette première introduction à la vie sauvage qui m’a amené plus tard à me consacrer à la défense de la nature et des animaux qui y vivent.

The Maasai of the Olgulului/Ololarashi Group Ranch (OOGR) have rallied behind the Kitenden Corridor project of the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).

They showed up in unprecedented numbers to the historic signing of an accord last year that would set aside their lands so that the local migrating elephants could more easily traverse them.

Download IFAW Climate Change & Animals materials using the link below.When I was younger, I pored over volumes of Encyclopedia Britannica to peer into animal worlds that I could not experience personally.
