The Lanzhou Greenland Volunteer Center advocates being “green” ecologically and promotes social welfare through their green efforts. This article is about an event that the center held recently.
On October 13th, 2012, Lanzhou Greenland Volunteer Center held the first activity of AAW this year at Lanzhou Industry College, associated with the Environment Protection Club and Roots and Shoots Group. It attracted over 100 undergraduates to participate. We gathered and enjoyed a video clip called “Growing Up With Little Elephants” and a quiz. The whole process was overseen by Zhang Feifei, the head of the Roots and Shoots Group, and was later advised and commented on by Teacher Li.
Brief introduction to IFAW
Established in 1969, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is currently one of the largest animal welfare and conservation charities in the world. Our mission is "to improve the welfare of wild and domestic animals throughout the world by reducing commercial exploitation of animals, protecting wildlife habitats, and assisting animals in distress". We have actively been advocating harmonious coexistence between man and animal.
IFAW, launched its project in China in 1993, starting with the concerns about the welfare of companion animals and the Asian black bear. Then, through the protection of the Tibetan antelope, elk, black-necked cranes, harbor seals, tigers and other animals, we gradually expanded the project and its impact in China. IFAW, with all levels of government departments and non-governmental organizations, will always focus on the protection of wildlife and companion animals, and publicity of the concept of the Ethical Treatment of Animals, as well as advocating the establishment of a civilized society for people and animals to live in harmony.
The yearly Animal Action Week (AAW) has been organized in 15 countries and held for 20 years. The main audience is young people. Lanzhou Greenland Volunteer Center began to hold this activity in Gansu in 2005, attracting an average of 45 universities or primary and secondary schools to attend yearly.
