Ubuntu 4 Animals is dedicated to the legal, religious and cultural protection of animals from human abuse. Ubuntu 4 Animals came into being in November 2013 with our first project, an AVAAZ petition to Pope Francis calling on him to use his role to protect animals from human abuse.
We exist because the animals exist. Without them the planet would not yield the rich plant diversity that sustains the entire fabric of the eco-system. With each species that becomes extinct we lose a spectrum of essential subtle qualities and vibrations that contribute to planetary existence and that human beings are still unable to discern. Animals are intelligent and sentient in ways that humans cannot grasp from our own limited, human-centered perception. We owe the animals our gratitude, humility, kindness and protection.
Ubuntu 4 Animals is currently working together with ITSOIS, and Together in Creation to develop and make available materials contributing to the emerging paradigm that puts the planet and all its inhabitants first.
A huge thank you to all those who have given in many different ways to Ubuntu 4 Animals. We could not do this without you.
