Animal rights ambassador
DINA NIMRY SALTI
Dina Salti is an animal rights activist in Amman who dedicates much of her time to improving the wellbeing of Jordan’s fauna, increasing awareness of animal abuses, and raising cultural standards as to how we coexist in harmony with nature. A lifelong lover of all animals, Dina began to get involved in raising awareness on the abusive conditions that animals in Jordan are exposed to after visiting one of the many illegal pet shops in West Amman a few years ago.
She along side with her team of like-minded people and dedicated animal lovers from different backgrounds and specialities co-founded Tabanni. While in the process of registering as a non profit, Tabanni seeks to optimize the animal adoption process in Jordan while prioritizing the well-being of the animal. Utilizing their diverse range of skillsets, the team behind Tabanni has been operating in Jordan as a group of individuals since November 2019 and were already active in the animal welfare sector before merging their efforts for the cause.
Tabanni has culminated their efforts in spearheading several initiatives to advocate and improve animal welfare in Jordan along with raising awareness of the common, unseen abuses that society is not aware of. They have also set their sights on legislative reform regarding the rights of animals in Jordan. Dina attributes Tabanni’s preliminary successes to the diverse range of skills and perspectives of the team members who provide a wealth of expertise and inspiration.
As a holistic practitioner and mother of two, kindness and compassion are driving forces behind Dina’s decision to fight for the rights of those who can’t speak for themselves. Healing begins by finding a proper balance. When our environment and the life that constitutes it is out of balance, so are we. Animal rights is just one way we can improve the human condition by extending our compassion to those we often overlook.
