A large majority of people I spoke to in South Africa said that “Africans are weary of animals”. As I traveled throughout the townships and towns I constantly saw this generalization challenged. Although lots of poor conditions exist for these animals, many are still in considerably good health. What’s more though, is I saw the potential for humane education classes with the youth and families. I did not realize the need and potential of humane education until I had these experiences in the townships. I hope to quickly include humane education in my work with my clients in the States.
