The Seminar In Action
This is a picture that was taken at a coffee shop in the island of Lesvos, North Aegean Sea, Greece. Greece has enacted strict laws regarding animal protection, but efforts to spread knowledge and address cultural values have allowed for great strides towards changing the country's long-standing indifference, negligence or maltreatment of animals.
