RSPCA Qld believes that the most powerful way to change people’s attitudes and behaviours towards animals is through humane education. Humane education is about fostering kindness and respect for animals, people and the environment through empathy.
Empathy, as research indicates, is a learned behaviour, and we have a range of innovative presentations that explore how and why we should care for all creatures, great and small.
Each year, our humane education team reaches more than 36,000 people through our range of education programs – EMU (Education Mobile Unit), school visits, community events, and animal care campus tours. Our hearts swell with pride when students and community members tell us how much fun they’ve had and thank us for opening their eyes to the concerns of all animals.
Check out the links and video below to find out more about our education services, and help children and the wider community learn to care for and respect all creatures great and small.
