RSPCA Tasmania offers educational opportunities through its Community Engagement Program.
What Is ‘Community Engagement’?
Community Engagement refers to RSPCA Tasmania working with all sectors of the community to foster kindness, respect and empathy for animals of all shapes and sizes… all creatures great and small. Driven by research that indicates empathy is a behaviour that can be learned, RSPCA Tasmania proudly offers a range of presentations and talks which explore how and why we should care for animals.
RSPCA Tasmania firmly believes education is one of the most powerful tools we have to change people’s attitudes and behaviours towards animals and their welfare. By engaging with the community and educating people of all ages and backgrounds, RSPCA Tasmania aims to reduce the incidences of animal cruelty across the state.
What Does RSPCA Tasmania Offer?
Whether you are a school, community group, club or business, RSPCA Tasmania is ready, willing and able to provide a presentation or talk that suits.
As part of our PAWS Program (Promoting Animal Welfare in Schools), we have a range of school-based presentations for various age groups exploring topics such as the role of the RSPCA, choosing a pet, responsible pet ownership and issues surrounding animal cruelty. Presentations have been put together by educational experts within the RSPCA and cater for curriculum needs.
Community groups, clubs and businesses might enjoy a presentation on the RSPCA’s history and how individuals can get involved with the organisation’s important work.
