The World Society for the Protection of Animals
Invites You to Celebrate Earth Day at Its Open House

Thursday, April 17, 2008
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.

NonProfit Center
89 South Street
2nd Floor, Suite 201
Boston, Mass.

Which causes more greenhouse gas emissions?

  • Driving gas-guzzling automobiles
  • Rearing cattle

The answer may surprise you. According to a 2006 report published by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, intensive animal rearing generates more greenhouse gas emissions than the transport sector!

Earth Day is a time to reflect on the impact our daily lives have on the environment and to take action to reduce our ecological footprint. This year, the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), a tenant organization at the NonProfit Center, hopes to include animals in this important discussion.

Please join us for a fun and informative conversation about animals, the environment, and ways you can help make the world a better place for all of its inhabitants. Light snacks will be served.

To RSVP, please email Tiffany Luongo at tluongo@wspausa.org

The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) is an international animal welfare organization. For more than 25 years, WSPA has assisted animals in need throughout the world. WSPA projects often take us where other animal welfare organizations cannot or will not go, working in parts of the world where the words “animal welfare” are seldom heard. This means that the majority of our work takes place in and with developing nations. WSPA is also the world’s largest alliance of animal welfare groups, connecting nearly 900 independent animal welfare organizations in 153 countries to raise the standards of animal welfare around the world.
