Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

– Albert Einstein

Kevin Richardson is an animal behaviourist and has done extensive research on native animals of Africa.

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

– Mohandas Gandhi

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Shannon!! It is certainly a very special thing Kevin Richardson is doing – just shows that perhaps we are really missing something when it comes to building a connection and awareness with animals….thanks for being here.
