OUR HISTORY

Since its inception PfA has educated and created awareness amongst people and their approach towards animals via various campaigns and workshops. PfA has successfully thwarted illegal slaughter of camel, global Ostrich farming, disbanding of elephant training camp at Dubare forest, mobile zoo display of animals in Mangalore, confiscations of Macaque, Parakeets, Slender Loris and Snakes from people domesticating them as pets and for commercial purposes. PfA also lobbied to get Karnataka tourism ministry to stop their plans in setting up a Dolphinarium in Karwar. PfA has also campaigned against cruelty meted out to animals like culling of stray dogs, whipping of horses at the turf club and animals caged and displayed in circuses.

WHAT WE DO

We at PfA believe that the unscrupulous suffering and exploitation faced by animals at the hands of humans can be ceased by bringing an end to the traditional "usage" of the animals. The natural habitats and food sources for the native fauna are constantly being eroded and these animals are being exposed to increasing risks from predators and ' unnatural' dangers. Cruelty towards animals accounts for many of the casualties brought in for care, attention and rehabilitation.

If we and other life forms on this planet are to survive in the future, the protection of nature and our physical environment from degradation has to become our primary necessity and responsibility. PfA is therefore committed to protecting and saving the already degrading and threatened natural heritage of the country.
