Rescue Animals in Disasters: An Urgent and Timely Need
Disasters are increasing in frequency and intensity around the world. They cause a lot of financial and human damage. But what about animals? Every year, billions of them suffer the destructive consequences of these events. However, these silent collateral victims remain forgotten by crisis management policies, thus raising economic, health, security, environmental and societal challenges. IFAW calls for a change.
