As South African phi­lan­thropist Nel­son Man­dela once said, “Ed­u­ca­tion is the most pow­er­ful weapon which you can use to change the world.” That was ex­actly what Ban­tay An­i­mal Wel­fare (BAW) did: ed­u­cate peo­ple to help save an­i­mals’ lives.

BAW wanted to ed­u­cate on an­i­mal wel­fare and pro­mote aware­ness about an­i­mal cru­elty. Part­ner­ing with Zoo Crew Philip­pines, they did a guided tour for guests at the Manila Zoo in cel­e­bra­tion of BAW’S sec­ond an­niver­sary.

“This year, we aim to pro­mote ed­u­ca­tion and aware­ness about an­i­mal wel­fare,” said BAW Ad­min­is­tra­tor Rhodora Lao.
