World Animal Awareness Society
The World Animal Awareness Society - WA2S.org
Are you standing at the crossroads of a human-animal intersection as an individual who wants to positively impact this world?
Whether addressing human stressors on the environment or experiencing the upset of disaster, the World Animal Awareness Society’s unbiased video journalism provides the human and animal perspectives needed to create viable and responsible solutions, whatever the issue.
Whether you belong to a government agency responsible for human lives, an animal welfare group protecting voiceless animals, or you want to get involved as a concerned citizen, the World Animal Awareness Society can help you – anywhere in the world.
The World Animal Awareness Society, founded by award winning filmmaker and Executive Director Tom McPhee, observes and visually documents, drawing humans together to facilitate positive solutions for humans and animals alike.
The WA2S.org has documented heroic post-disaster rescue missions spanning Haiti’s earthquake-torn rubble. Filmed the destruction of wildlife and human livelihood in the Gulf of Mexico’s oily shores. We’ve entered the Japanese radiation zone where companion animals were left behind by distraught human beings, and much, much more. Our latest undertaking, American Strays, is our own model Detroit census tracking stray dogs to pinpoint overpopulation issues and safeguard public health.
For organizations living and breathing in spaces of animal/human need, we offer documentary services with exceptionally reasonable rates. Let us help you share your mission, knowledge and experience where animals and humans intersect.
The WA2S.org also encourages student observation and documentation of the contemporary human/animal intersection. Fundraising for Student Visionaries Clubs, official chapters of WA2S.org, facilitates the education of future stewards of this earth.
The World Animal Awareness Society is a human animal awareness initiative. We take no sides, but seek to understand what each side is. Let us stand firmly on the side of knowledge and evolve from this point forward, together.
