Today, we are launching the We Animals Archive, a searchable database of thousands of Jo-Anne's photos. We want these photos to be used in campaigns to help animals, as media resources to move these conversations forward, and by educators examining the ways in which humans see, and don't see, animals in our society.
In many parts of Asia, tiger cubs are routinely separated from their mothers and kept sedated so that tourists can interact with them. Too often, we look at these animals and see nothing more than hashtags and likes, posing for selfies and posting the images to social media. Our hope is that the We Animals Archive will help people fighting to end animal exploitation shine a light on animals in a human world.
The We Animals Archive is now live at weanimalsarchive.org
