WSPA's prime focus is to relieve the suffering of animals

However it is plain to see that human and animal lives are deeply intertwined and lots of the times we find animals suffering, people are usually involved.

Education of humans is a key part in the fight to protect animals and help people live animal friendly lives.

WSPA does work with people though - for example bear dancing - common in India - is a tradition and also a sole source of income for some of that country's poorest communities.

Sometimes this is how animal suffering is perpetuated.

WSPA works with these communities to train and promote alternative livelihoods which allow different ethical sources of income to be obtained thus allowing the practice of bear dancing to end.
