Never preachy, the film simply lays bare the facts and lets viewers interpret them. It's the same strategy that animal rights organizations have used for years: Give people the information, and let them decide. And it's working.
The average American consumes more than 250 pounds of meat a year, an appetite fed by the slaughter of 10 billion animals. Yet we spend a fortune on our pets, too. The fact is that we both care for animals and eat them. How do we manage the psychological tension created by these seemingly conflicting values?
It makes no sense to support zoos in general and then express anger at this one for being so public about its disposal of what it deemed surplus inventory.
The Pollination Project provides $1000 in seed funding to an individual who is working to make the world -- or just their own community -- a better, more peaceful and more sustainable place.

Growing up in the Evangelical Christian tradition, I was repeatedly warned of the threat posed by "secular Humanism." Despite the reflexive irony of the criticism when considering the source, I'm inclined to agree with the overall assessment. Being an atheist does not make me a Humanist by default.
Fewer than 5,000 black rhinos remain in the wild. They need our urgent aid: not a hunter's bullet. This is not real conservation; this is rhino slaughter for sport.

Twenty years ago I knew no one with any answers; today it hardly matters, as the feral hundreds have grown into hundreds of thousands.
