Animal ethics/Wellfare should be added to the school curriculum and every child should be required to attend. 

Each year, countless animals are harmed because so many people still do not care about animals or understand why we should care about them. Its time that changed, people should understand that every animal has the same thing you and i do, a life.

Its all good and well saying that parents are responsible for teaching their children animal ethics/wellfare, but the sad truth is that not every parent does. 

Its already a known fact that children are a product of their enviroment - meaning that a child is quick to adopt the beliefs or views of their parent/guardian. Statistically, 3 in 4 teens say that their parents are their biggest influence, This means that if a parent has little to no respect for animals, chances are the child won't either. 

Educating children in animal ethics will not just this help make the UK a safer place for animals, it will also help to teach children important life skills such as but not limited to: responsibility, compassion and overall general care. This could lead to less children supporting cruel acts like animal testing.

Study shows that 90% of serial killers begin with killing animals before humans. Educating children in animal ethics may also be a great way to teach children the importance of life and life skills as said above. Learning of such importance may lead to a drop in animal abusers and serial killers, overall saving thousands of pounds which can be put back into education or other places where needed. 

Please support this by taking a few seconds to sign the petition. If we can educate children on Animal ethics and the importance of life, we can save not just the lives of animals but maybe even some human lives too! 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and remember, Animal lives matter too!
