*In a spectacular final demo, Latvian AR group Dzivnieku briviba (Animal Freedom) completed 27 peaceful protests over the summer against Riga Circus and its use of animals – especially the hiring of notorious “trainer” Lars Holscher with African female SONJA (39) and Asian female VANA MANA (43/45/47?). **16 animals, including an elephant (thought to be African female BABY), were seized under accusations of mistreatment from Circus Martin on Sardinia, Italy – the second time this year that the elephant has been impounded.

Elephants Cry Too

The Elephant Project is an art-based, transcontinental online curriculum for high school students. It is essentially a viral platform for students around the world to share ideas about elephants and other animal species. It begins with twenty short films viewable online. Students can respond to the videos as homework either in an artistic or written form. Her hope is that the arts can help nurture children and adults to become more emotionally connected with elephants and other animal species.

Naturestage is proud to count as colleagues, in this mission to bring our kinship with other species into the mainstream, Gay Bradshaw, founder of the Kerulos Center and Zoe Weil, founder of the Institute for Humane Education. I can’t recommend highly enough the courses offered by both of these organizations. To read more, see the course Being Sanctuary and the courses offered at IHE.

The Elephant Project and curriculum will follow many of the principles of these courses at Kerulos and IHE, but breaks new ground by offering online films with an arts-based curriculum for exploring trans-species empathy at the highschool and college levels.
