Otara Lanka’s Ambassador for World Animal Day

Otara Gunewardene has been appointed as Lanka’s Ambassador for World Animal Day - an initiative for uniting the animal welfare movement worldwide, in recognition of her numerous efforts to curb the country’s stray dog population through her personal Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative.

This honour cements Otara’s reputation as one of Sri Lanka’s most passionate advocates on the prevention of cruelty to animals.

World Animal Day started in 1931 at a convention of ecologists in Florence as a way of highlighting the plight of endangered species, has since grown to encompass all kinds of animal life and is widely celebrated in countries throughout the world.

As an Ambassador towards this initiative, Otara will play a vital role of promoting this cause within the local community to ensure the speedy growth of the ideas behind World Animal Day.

The website for the initiative claims that all its Ambassadors are highly motivated individuals who are passionate about animals and their welfare, have proven their commitment to encouraging support for the World Animal Day initiative in their own country.

Speaking about his recognition, Otara said it was vital for all animal welfare groups to work together to establish a united, common platform where animal lovers can come together with the goal of ensuring the eradication of cruelty to animals.
