Australian Animal Ethics in Education Institute

The aim of the Australian Animal Ethics in Education Institute is the inclusion of the ethics of humans’ relationship with and treatment of animals[1] in education and training at all levels.

Encouraging educators to work towards this aim we believe will result in a more just, caring and sustainable future for all sentient beings.

What is Roots & Shoots?

Roots creep underground everywhere and make a firm foundation. Shoots seem very weak, but to reach the light, they can break open brick walls. Imagine that the brick walls are all the problems we have inflicted on our planet. Hundreds of thousands of roots & shoots, hundreds of thousands of young people around the world, can break through these walls. We CAN change the world. – Dr. Jane Goodall

The Roots & Shoots program is about making positive change happen—for our people, for animals and for the environment. With tens of thousands of young people in more than 120 countries, the Roots & Shoots network connects youth of all ages who share a desire to create a better world. Young people identify problems in their communities and take action. Through service projects, youth-led campaigns and an interactive website, Roots & Shoots members are making a difference across the globe.

Take Action for Animals

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is committed to protecting all animals—from the mouse in a laboratory to elephants in South Africa—through a variety of means. We rescue animals, lobby for laws, investigatecruelties, educate the public, and so much more.

But we cannot do it alone. We need your help. By taking action to help animals, you can translate your concern into positive change. Whether you write a letter, make a quick phone call, or simply forward one of our emails to a friend—you make a difference. Animals get the protection they need not just because you care, but because you turn your care into action.

Thank you for the actions you’ve taken on behalf of those who cannot act for themselves. To learn about more animals who need your help today, please scroll down to see our active campaigns and recent emails. Together, our actions can make a real change for animals.
