Video: Youth Engagement for Animal Welfare in Liberia


In July 2020, Animal People attended the annual United Nations High Level Political Forum as a member of the Animal Issues Thematic Cluster. As part of this event, Animal People Executive Director Wolf Gordon Clifton conducted a series of interviews with experts on various aspects of animal protection and sustainability. We will be releasing recordings of those interviews here on Animal People Forum.

In the video below, Wolf Gordon Clifton interviews Morris Darbo, founder of Liberia Animal Welfare & Conservation Society (LAWCS) and country director of Liberia for Humane Society International (HSI). They discuss current issues facing animal in Liberia, LAWCS’ programs, and the benefits of humane education.
