Animal welfare is at question as never before. Mass production of goods from animal skin, industrial meat and fish consumption have reached its peak. Apart from that, animals are constantly being abused and beaten up in daily life. Even though the issue has reached its closing point, it is our power to fix this and see how does animal cruelty affect humans. It might be hard to believe, but higher education could be a key to it. It is a known fact that the more educated people get, the fewer aggression and assault they express in normal life. Animals happen to be the weakest creatures around us and become the main target for potential abusers. These creatures are not only being tested with cosmetics and pharmaceutical goods on, not only being killed for clothes and for a nice breakfast, but also are suffering from home abuse. It is getting even harder to recognize animal abuse problems and find potential solutions. But how crucial the issue is, how each and every one of us could influence and how education could be a main key to solving the problem we will explore.

Thousands of animals suffer from human’s hands every single day and there is no hope it will end someday. Not only they suffer because we consume meat and there is a need to kill millions of living creatures for human beings to eat lunch. But also, there is a regular abuse of animals all over the world. Animals are also being raped, assaulted, beaten up and tortured, as well, as children hurt animals, too. There are no words to describe how horrible this is. Furthermore, to fight with it, we need to understand the reasons. It is rare for these things to happen in well-developed countries, but mostly in Asian and African countries where even human rights are not protected. So how to prevent it and reduce it to the minimum to boost animal welfare will be discussed further.

Increasing erudition across the nation

It is a known fact that the more educated people are, the less harm they bring to Mother Nature. The person who is learning something new about the world every day, how organisms function, they no longer have the ability to abuse someone weaker physically. There are various essay examples on how education has a direct influence on animal welfare and abuse deduction. Long story short, education and studying in college keep teenagers and youth busy. We can witness all the time how children hurt animals because of lack of knowledge.  There is an extreme level of energy and even aggression young people have to express, that sometimes animals are the first to suffer from it. So going to college, studying, homework and all that would keep those busy. Furthermore, uneducated people do not know about animals’ welfare and do not know much about it. At school we learn how animals are just as people, they feel pain, getting hurt both physically and emotionally, which is why even studying basic biology would increase the animal well-being drastically. Those people are known to be more gentle and careful with living creatures, leaving all the help in shelters and animals that live on the streets.

Recycle, reuse, reduce

From the first sight, this is just a waste management technique. But the amount of waste that is being produced every second influences our fauna directly. I am sure you saw various videos with sea turtles swimming among the trash or a dead whale on the beach with the stomach full of different garbage. This is all the result of our waste politics. Nowadays, we all are extremely spoiled consumers. The market is full of cheap products which we are aiming to purchase even if we do not use them. We buy coffee in disposable cups and are not even thinking that it will never be recycled. So, could this help animals exactly? If we are careful with the waste we produce, if we recycle, it will bring so much value to flora and fauna and will save some innocent animals. Reuse – is the idea of smart consumption. Do not buy more than you need, use it again, if it is possible, even in different areas. For example, electronic cigarettes that could further be transformed into power banks for charging electronic devices. And also, sell or give away thighs you no-longer require. Last, but not least, reduce. Think before buying if this is something you really need. Is there an alternative you purchased before? It goes about clothes, home supplies, food, etc. Make sure you will use it and absolutely need it before taking it with you to help nature.

To sum it up, to help animals, we need to start with ourselves. There are thousands of initiatives you could join to help the little creatures like volunteering in the shelters, donating for their support, getting yourself a little friend from the street, etc. Animals are not as lucky as people to be able to take care of themselves and they require little help from us. And it is also important to see how does animal cruelty affect people and they start expression those negative emotions with people as well. This is something that we can do, at least not to abuse them and remember that they are weaker and can not speak their mind. The statement “look how a person treats animals and you can tell everything about this person” exists for this reason and absolutely reflects the true nature of the person.
