Animal Action Education

Changing Hearts and Minds Around the World
Learn, Inspire, Empower

For more than two decades, IFAW has joined with educators, parents and celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio to bring our free Animal Action Education (AAE) programme to classrooms, youth groups and families worldwide.
