RSPCA Education Mobile Unit

29/05/2015
​RSPCA Qld believes that the most powerful way to change people’s attitudes and behaviours towards animals is through humane education. Humane education is about fostering kindness and respect for animals, people and the environment through empathy.
 
Empathy, as research indicates, is a learned behaviour, and the RSPCA have the Education Mobile Unit (EMU van) to help teach students.
 
Our Year 3 and 4 students visited the EMU van and learnt many things including:
  • What it would be like to be a vet
  • How to care for pets
  • What happens when dogs are left in cars
  • What life is like for battery hens
  • What happens to cats when the are stuck in the drain.
