Jujuy al día® – This Monday morning, council members received the visit of a group of people who work for a long time with responsible pet ownership, as well as with the care of the Environment, who committed their presence at the Public Hearing that will be held on the topic.
The opportunity served to visitors to inform the councillors about the work being done on the responsible ownership of pets, a theme which included the preparation of a book intended for students and teachers, which was presented to the selectmen.
After the meeting, the president of the Commission of Ecology and Environment, Santiago Jubert, said: “we received a range of groups and organisations that work with care and awareness of pet ownership and the environment, was a very important meeting, of much value. We heard a work that is being done in Ledesma, to raise the awareness of boys of the schools on the subject”.
The council member said that the visitors have already committed their presence at the next Public Hearing which will be specifically on the topic, “they expressed their intentions of participating in the Public Hearing that possibly take place during the second fortnight of August, because they have a lot of actual work in the field, so it will be very valuable to his contribution”.
For his part, the deputy provincial Victoria Moon, remarked that “we are to accompany and support environmental and protection associations of animals and ecologists, they wanted to be heard by this body and to bring proposals. They were very well received by the councillors and there was a commitment to work together to make people aware of responsible ownership and care towards the pets. The maltreatment of animals in the wild or urban-it is a crime, there are national laws on the subject, to which the province is attached. In addition, the city Council is working on an ordinance quite full and wide, giving participation to all the citizens.”
In turn, Liliana Tapia stressed that “we are very grateful for the opening that they gave us. We are a group of teachers and health workers, which we proceeded to do the thematic point of responsible ownership of animals, with a warning that still the society has not understood that this topic has a direct impact on the public health, zoonotic diseases. That’s why we came with the proposal to see if from the legislative can do something, considering that these issues are very important to incorporate within the curriculum design of all levels. The slogan of education is to transform the reality and that reality is changed when it is known. We are very grateful for this legislative body that called out to us”, he concluded.
The meeting was headed by the president of the Commission of Ecology and Environment, Santiago Jubert, accompanied by the president of the institution, Lisandro Aguiar and city council members Jose Luis Sanchez, Patricia Moya, Marta Russo Arriola, Estela Flores and Mirian Burgos.
The group visit was headed by the Deputy Provincial, Victory Moon, as chairman of the Environmental Commission of the Provincial Legislature; accompanied by Liliana Tapia, a teacher from the town of Ledesma, a member of the Educational Association GAIA; Venice Herrera and Sara Cabrera of the Group Birds Jujuy; Antonio Vilca Group Rescue Reptiles Jujuy and Adriana Humacata.
