W.A.T.A. Association (World Animal Trainers Association) - who we are

Other initiatives such as sporting events , conferences , excursions , instead to give members the opportunity to exchange their views with industry experts , promote innovative ideas about the areas listed above , with the ability to test and promote the results achieved after the various training programs or from personal experiences.
Our logo was created to comply with the objectives of the Association.
The logo contains the four elements of nature : air, water , fire and earth .
The Cosmos is the expression of a whole organized and tidy. Everything in the Universe, to the macrocosmic and microcosmic level , is arranged in a precise balance, governed by the laws of the universe.
Originated from a primordial chaos elements ( fire, air , water, and land ) are the basis of the order of things and the organization of the universe.
Each element can not exist without the other , having the ability to mutate into one another.
The logo was created on the basis of this balance that must be maintained in respect of the elements that compose it and of life itself.
Each animal depicted in the logo by marine mammals (water) , birds of prey (air ) , mammals terresri (ground), fire ( bilogy of the species and the earth) , are the symbol of this union that if correctly interpreted and respected leads to ' balance of elements .
Wata with its events, training courses, seminars and conferences, wants to spread a great message: respect for the nature, for animals and the planet. Education to correct and positive interaction with animals leading to the perfect combination. The man has a big responsibility to interact fairly and with respect for his fellow man and the animals (symbol hands that contain the 4 elements).
Do you want to reach you the perfect combination?
