Virtual Worlds Animals

Virtual Worlds Animals Detail
First Ever On-Line Conference Set with Top Leaders in Animal Welfare, Animal Support
Helpless, innocent animals are being abused, neglected and abandoned. The first ever “virtual conference” in support of animals will be held May 20-21. Participants from anywhere with an Internet connection can take part in any or all sessions. Free program on a “first-come, first served” basis. The purpose: to inform, equip and inspire people to help animals in need.
Millions of innocent animals suffer each day from abuse, neglect and abandonment. They can be helped, if more people take informed and compassionate action.
The power of the Internet is being used in a new way to help animals. The first ever “virtual conference” in support of animals is being held this month. Participants from anywhere with an Internet connection can take part in any or all sessions of this landmark live event. Space is available on a “first-come, first served” basis.
The event is scheduled for May 20-21 and features leaders from major national and international animal support organizations. It will be followed by a series of other on-line sessions later in the year.
Some of the May sessions are for the general public, including those who consider themselves “animal lovers”. Other sessions are professional development training programs for organizations that help animals (staff, Board members and volunteers, in particular).
“There are so many animals in need, and just about everyone can do something to help,” notes Marcia Elder, project manager for the event. She adds: “Cruelty, neglect and abandonment happen far more than most people realize and so many innocent animals suffer in the process.” Emergencies like the recent rash of tornadoes in the US and the tsunami in Japan add to the needs. So do disregard, harshness and unkind treatment of animals.
The on-line events are designed to address these needs. In addition, all of the May sessions are free-of-charge. Contributions to the non-profit sponsor are invited but there is no registration-fee and participants are welcome to attend without donating.
No special equipment is required to take part – just a computer and the Internet. Attendees will be able to see presentation materials used by the speakers and to also ask their questions live.
Speakers for the public events in May include:
Gregory Castle, CEO, Best Friends Animal Society
Allan Kornberg, Executive Director, Farm Sanctuary
Adam Roberts, Executive Vice President, Born Free USA
Hilary Anne Hagar, MNPL, Director, Humane Society of the US, National Volunteer Center
Tamira Ci Thayne, Founder & CEO, Dogs Deserve Better.
