Youth of all ages can make a difference to help animals. Lots and lots of kids have decided to help one species or another, and sometimes entire regions and all the animals that live there. They took just one step at a time, usually by reading and then talking to the people around them, giving talks in their classrooms and at community events. They shared what they had learned. Eventually these kids found themselves on radio and TV news programs, some got invited to State and National government offices. Some went to the White House. Some even got invited to the United Nations! Along the way they met more and more people who wanted to help the animals. As they made more friends and connected with more people they grew their influence to make the world a better place.
Grownups move from passive to "advocate", and from "advocate" to "activist".
STOP the WAR on NATURE is our campaign to enroll adults who care about the future of our civilization and don't want to sit on the sidelines. People who want to be advocates for nature and our children's future. People who might want to move past advocacy to activism to help shape what this world is becoming.
There is strength in numbers. It has always been true. It will take great numbers of people to counter the strong forces of corporate greed, governmental lethargy, and public complacency to shift the direction of our progress away from environmental disaster and towards sustainability and respect for human rights. We are building those numbers by including everyone who cares.
