For close to a year, refugees from the Syria, Afghanistan and elsewhere in the Middle East have been fleeing by the masses to pursue hope and better l...
What kind of person purposely destroys a beaver dam and sets a "wall of death" of Conibear traps, knowing that the unsuspecting beavers will return to...
In every ocean, sharks are highly sought out... By one another and by the human race for their meat and for their valuable fin, often used in cuisine and trading.
My mother raised me vegetarian in the '90s for health (not ethical) reasons. Considering it was nearly 30 years ago, raising a vegetarian child then was probably as rare as raising a vegan child today.
I didn't realize how pervasive animal exploitation is in our culture until I had to become more mindful.

Whether or not one committed the crime, when one is released from prison the community often fosters their own reality of that person. It goes without...
After my first year of veganism, I made a decision: I couldn't watch the people closest to me eat meat. I see so many images of animal murder online. I've desensitized myself to much of the gore, but every bloody meme and slaughterhouse video stays in my subconscious.
