The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is the nation’s largest protection organization. They address a full range of animal issues—from pets to wildlife. Introducing children to humane concepts is a critical part of the HSUS’s mission to create a truly humane society. Willow Ann Sirch, former writer and editor for KIND (Kids in Nature’s Defense) News, has long been interested in eco-defenders, animals, and the environment. She is the author of Eco-Women: Protectors of the Earth and a graduate of Brown University. She lives in Hamden, Connecticut, with her family.
