Our best hope

  • IFAW’s education programmes empower young people and communities to take positive action for animals.
  • Our Animal Action education programme reaches more than 5,000,000 young people in 18+ countries.
  • Aboard our floating classrooms, children learn to respect and appreciate whales and other endangered marine wildlife.
  • We teach community-based companion animal welfare from South Africa to Navajo Nation.
  • We help local communities in Africa and Asia learn to live in harmony with wild animals.
