A team from the World Society for the Protection of Animals is currently in the tsunami affected area of Solomon Islands to help out with looking after animals affected by the disaster.

Animals are often the forgotten victims of disasters, and the WSPA says saving them protects the damaged communities that they are such a vital a part of, ensuring that people have a solid foundation from which to rebuild their health and livelihoods.

The organisation's Disaster Management Communications Manager, Scott Cantin, tells Bruce Hill that the welfare of animals and people in the aftermath of a natural disaster are intertwined.
