Humane Education Projects Handbook.
Junior League of Ogden, UT.
This handbook was developed to promote interest in humane education and to encourage the adoption of humane education projects. Although specifically designed to assist Junior Leagues in developing such projects, the content should prove valuable to animal welfare organizations, zoos, aquariums, nature centers, and other project-oriented groups seeking new ideas or prospectives for organizing their programs. The handbook (in loose-leaf format) catalogs the animal-related education, legislation, and pet-facilitated therapy projects of more than 20 Junior Leagues in 18 states. A brief description of each project is provided, along with suggestions for program implementation and evaluation and samples of community response. Many of the programs are accompanied by detailed plans of the project's goals, objectives, procedures, time framework, and needed resources. Specific sections deal with humane education in schools, humane education legislation, pet-facilitated therapy, use of animals with victims of child abuse, zoo projects, aquarium projects, nature center projects, support projects for humane societies, and public information projects. Additional chapters discuss the functions of task forces and the importance of building coalitions and networks among community organizations with similar interests and complementary resources. (JN)
