Emirates Animal Welfare Society Launches “I Need Water Just Like You” Campaign

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates-Sunday 3 July 2016 [ AETOS Wire ]

The Emirates Animal Welfare Society is launching the “I Need Water Just Like You” campaign, in mid-July. The campaign is in its second year and is being organized with the participation of the media, governmental entities and public benefit organizations.

This is in keeping with the Society’s eagerness to spread awareness in the community about the importance of safeguarding animals. The campaign also reflects the Emirates Animal Welfare Society’s strategic plans and objectives and will include seminars, lectures and brochures. A number of childcare societies and centers in Abu Dhabi will be selected to visit to the Emirates Park Zoo and will be shown how to deal with animals and care for them.  

Dr. Nasser Lakhrebani Al Nuaimi, Chairman of the Emirates Animal Welfare Society, explained that preparations for the campaign are in their final stages and include a number of activities, such as lectures and workshops. He stressed that the campaign covers various areas of the UAE and will see the distribution of awareness brochures on the methods used to care for animals, along with  membership applications provided for those who wish to join the Emirates Animal Welfare Society.

Dr. Nasser Lakhrebani Al Nuaimi said that an environmental seminar with a wildlife expert will be organized, along with a workshop that involves a group of veterinarians talking about how to take care of animals at home, especially during the summer months. He added that the campaign timing is the summer and aims to show members of the community how to care for animals during high temperatures, as well as provide information about their habitats. He encouraged the public to participate in voluntary initiatives related to animal protection and to adopt positive behaviors towards animals, in order to ensure environmental balance.

Notably, the “I Need Water Just Like You” campaign last year saw a remarkable level of interaction from the audience at the various locations covered by the campaign.
