Participation in animal and environmental advocacy does not always follow traditional forms. Danika will discuss how Foster Parrots, a wildlife sanctuary in Hope Valley, RI, is creating a space in which the arts are used to broaden opportunities for the individual to contribute to the animal welfare and conservation movements. Danika received her MS in Animals and Public Policy (MAPP) in 2015, studying the history, policy, and current events of the animal welfare movement; unexpectedly, MAPP also prepared her to run a sanctuary that houses over 450 animals.
