Humane education helps to avoid bad situations for animals. When educated, people know what is wrong and right when interacting and caring for animals and this creates the positive impact of animals not suffering. They take these teachings into account when around animals and they are more aware of what they are doing when handling them. It also helps to learn about it because people that abuse animals sometimes turn to domestic violence. That is not a good scenario to fall into, and with proper education it can be avoided. Furthermore, learning the importance of how to prevent animal abuse helps people to understand the animal's needs. If they are aware, they are able to better care for the animal. This increases the animal's overall happiness, and that leads them to flourish within their environment.
Awareness promotes equality. In a sea turtle farm, the turtles were getting abused. The situation was that they were keeping a ton of them in one tank and people were handling them even though they do not like it. When people visited the farm, they were allowed to handle the turtles, but that affected them negatively overall because it upset their mental state. When it was disrupted, the turtles would eventually turn on each other and that would cause all of the turtles to be in a bad state of mind. Some of them were even being killed and eaten by people and that is not good. When people realized just how bad the problem was, they started to do several things to help the turtles. They started to educate people and they turned the farm into a rehabilitation place to improve the lives of the sea turtles. Without the use of education, the sea turtles may not have been saved. It helped them to survive and thrive.
The animals are being saved from bad conditions. In a bunch of zoos, many of the animals were not getting treated properly. They were forced to stay in cages or pens that deprived them of their natural habitat, and they were being treated as entertainment. Even though they witnessed the abuse, people were not doing anything to help the animals that were suffering behind the big glass windows in the zoo. Some of the animals even got taken away from their families. That caused the animals to act out while they were being kept in there. People started to realize that what they were doing was extremely wrong and from discovering this, zoos closed down exhibits and some even sent animals to sanctuaries so they could be rehabilitated. Because of education, the animals were able to be saved and now they can be cared for properly.
Education is helping to save wildlife in need. SeaWorld was not keeping orcas and other aquatic animals in the marine amusement park in a humane way.The conditions that they were living in were not natural for them and that caused some of them to die young.The animals have been suffering in the tanks in the aquatic exhibits. With the use of education, PETA was able to save the aquatic life in the parks. They did this by complaining to officials about it and also held demonstrations and educated people about what was happening. All of the awareness caused SeaWorld to not breed orcas anymore and that saved the animals from getting harmed any more than they already were. Now, they are going to get returned to their natural homes. This helped the orcas to get away from being treated poorly.
It helps all living things to get along and live in harmony. Educating children about animal abuse not only helps them to better behave and get along with others, it also helps to prevent them from being cruel to animals today or later in their lives. When taught, children learn to understand kindness and this causes them to treat other living things with respect and to be mindful when interacting with animals. Therefore, education helps kids to learn how fragile life can be so they most likely will do their best not to harm it. If people do not hurt them, the animals will better thrive in their environment. This benefits everyone because the children learn kindness, the animals get treated properly, and the people that are educated can pass on the message to others. Education is an important part of being aware. When people are aware, they sometimes stop doing the things that they learn are wrong.
