Animal Welfare visits Ramingining
The Animal Welfare Branch recently embarked on a trip to Ramininging, 560km east of Darwin, to deliver an interactive session to students.
Two department staff travelled from Darwin to deliver the presentation titled ‘Food, water, shelter and don’t be cruel’, which focused on the key responsibilities of animal ownership and understanding of what constitutes animal cruelty.
The presentation included a power point and an enthusiastic question and answer session, providing an inviting setting for student engagement.
“One of the key parts of the Animal Welfare Branch’s role is promoting community awareness about the welfare of animals,” said Peter Phillips, Director Animal Welfare.
“Heading out into more remote communities allows us to spread our message far and wide to ensure knowledge about animal welfare starts at a young age."
The department strives to collaborate and strengthen relationships with the Northern Territory community by delivering engagement activities to promote understanding about animal welfare.
