Franimals – A global community for young animal lovers!
We’re extremely excited about sharing a fantastic new website for young people who are passionate about helping animals.
Franimals is a global community of young animal lovers, launched in 2015 as a sister-project of Voiceless, the animal protection institute, and founded by lifelong animal rights activist, Ondine Sherman.
The driving force of Franimals is simple: “We believe in kindness to all creatures. Elephants, pigs and wolves? Yep, love them all!”
We couldn’t agree more. As humane educators, our job is to help young people think critically about the distinction we make between the animals we share our homes with and the animals we use for food and other products. Critical thinking and ethical behaviour are big parts of the Australian Curriculum, and providing students with empowering, age-appropriate and honest material is an important step towards raising socially conscious and solutions-driven citizens.
Animals rights is a topic that many young Australians feel passionate about. Franimals gives young people the opportunity to:
- Meet awesome animal-protectors;
- Learn about global animal issues;
- Be inspired by other teens making a difference;
- Discover the wonders of animals – both wild and domestic.
- Make their voice heard for voiceless animals; and
- Much, much more!
Thousands of teens from over 40 countries around the world are already reading and engaging in Franimals since its launch in September 2015.
Your students can visit Franimals at www.franimals.org and join the online community on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.
If you have an inspiring young animal-lover in your class, or would like your school’s animal protection work to be featured as a positive example for others, please contact Ondine at email@example.com.
