ACTAsia NEEDS YOUR VOTE!
ACTAsia has been shortlisted as one of five finalists for the McKenna-Travers award as part of the Born Free Foundation. The People’s Choice Award winner will receive £5000 towards their project.
With just one click you can vote for Pei Su and ACTAsia’s ground breaking Caring for Life education programme, which works with primary school children to promote kindness and compassion towards animals, people and the environment.
ACTAsia applied for the award to help raise awareness about our Caring for Life programme in addition to the chance of securing £5000 to promote compassion for people, kindness towards animals and respect for our planet through education.
The panel recognised the tremendous work already achieved by ACTAsia and commented: “Pei Su is “a passionate and relentless advocate of education as the main driver for sustainability, protection of animals and conservation of wildlife” and I believe that her project has the potential to effect long-term change on a huge scale.”
The McKenna-Travers Award for Compassionate Conservation (MTA) is named in honour of Virginia McKenna OBE, her late husband Bill Travers MBE, and their eldest son, Will Travers OBE, who co-founded the charity that became Born Free in 1984.
