  • Tommy the chimp

    Historic legal case featuring Tommy the chimp

    An animal rights group in the United States is arguing that a chimp called Tommy is being unlawfully imprisoned and want him to be moved from private ownership to a sanctuary. What do you think? Should animals have rights the same as humans? Do animals have the right to live their life without being imprisoned?

    Why not get ask your teacher to invite an Animal Aid school speaker in to your classroom to discuss these issues?

    Back to school

    We hope you had a lovely summer break and did lots of nice things. Please continue your work for animals while studying, and help friends and classmates understand why it’s important to care about animals.

    • Use your schoolwork to teach others about stopping cruelty to animals. Try investigating an animal-related issue when you have to write an essay or do a project.
    • Ask your teacher to invite an Animal Aid speaker to talk to your class. Details are on the Animal Aid website – see the Education section.
    • Start planning your activities now for Vegan Month in November or for Veggie Month in March.
    • Try suggesting a veggie week in your cafeteria so that everyone can see how great veggie food is! Or join in with the Meat-Free Monday campaign and make Mondays, or another day, go all veggie. We can help with catering ideas.
    • Why not set up an animal society at school? You won’t be the only one who wants to get active for animals – put the word out and you’ll be up and running in no time. Contact us for help and more information.
