MY ANIMAL WELFARE BIOGRAPHY
ANIMAL WELFARE BIOGRAPHY ( WORLD ANIMAL DAY AMBASSADOR)
I am Chiemeka Chiedozie Animal activist, Campaigner, Humane Educator and the founder of the Humane Global Network, a humane organization registered in Nigeria to promote animal welfare and vegetarianism in school. The Seminars in schools has been carried out in over 200 schools both in Nigeria and outside with proof of photographs.
I started the campaign in school teaching kids in Nigeria on the need to be humane since 2010 and has been consistent doing this in the last eighty years. As a campaigner, I was first featured in Animal times, Magazine 2012 published by the people for the ethical treatment of animal (PETA).
As Animal Educator, I am using materials sent to me by Animal Aid, London, People for the Ethical treatment of Animal PETA, Vegetarian International voice for animals VIvA, Animal Defenders international, National Vivisection society,, international fund for animal welfare, to promote animal welfare here in Nigeria.
I have been featured also in over twenty (30) newspapers and online media platform in Nigeria. In 2012, I was made the world Animal Day Ambassador for Nigeria by Caroline Ruane, the Executive Campaign Director of Nature Watch Foundation there in London. Severally, I have been sent a sponsorship form to fill to be able to attend the animal care expo conference in America.
In 2012, I was invited to share my animal welfare experience to the staff of Society for Animal Welfare Ghana (SWAGH) in Dodowa, by the World Animal Day ambassador in Ghana, Mr Ujakpa Martin. In the year 2014, I was also sent an invitation letter to come down to Liberia by Mr Morris Darbo, in 2013. the founder and Executive Director of Liberia Animal Welfare and Conservative Society who is also the World Animal Day Ambassador for Liberia.
In 2015, I was invited to speak on vegetarianism and animal talks by the Veggie Victory, the organizer of the Lagos Vegetarian festival that attracted a lot of vegetarians across the globe and students to the venue. I became a vegetarian four years ago. My being a vegan is not because of religion but for the sake of my health and my passion for animals. Being an activist and a vegetarian is one of the most interesting things that have ever happened to me.
Most of the times, I have invited to the Indian cultural Centre in Nigeria where I related with indians and vegans so as to promote vegetarianism .I am a good friend of Mr Emmanuel Eyo, the president of the Nigerian Vegetarian Society and the founder of the Nigerian Society for the Protection and Cruelty of Animals (NSPCA)
