Working with Government Bodies
Working with government bodies can be a frustrating task, the path ridden with so many hurdles and obstacles. The helplessness of the voiceless creatures; lack of public awareness on animal abuse and the laws governing animals; opposition from persons who interests are likely to be affected; insufficient resources and manpower are only some of the factors that come in the way of effective policies for animals. To overcome this, NGOS & Animal activists not only need to equip themselves with the knowledge, expertise and manpower but also co-ordinate and work with various officials.
