AWARE: free education resources for students and teachers

RSPCA Victoria believes education is the key to creating lasting change. We aim to help young people develop responsible and caring behaviour toward animals, which we hope that in turn, will prevent animal cruelty and neglect in the long-term.  
That’s why RSPCA has developed a series of resources aimed at educating young people about animal welfare.  
RSPCA AWARE (Animal Wellbeing: Awareness, Responsibility and Education) provides resources for educators, students and parents. These resources help young people develop knowledge, skills and understandings around improving the welfare of all animals, be they companions, farmed or wild animals. 

AWARE Kids’ Education Portal 

The RSPCA AWARE Kids Education Portal is a unique online education resource library. 

The portal has been designed to support children’s learning about animal welfare and responsibility towards animals, whilst developing children’s respect, understanding and compassion for all living creatures.
