The Unbound Project  A multimedia & book project by @weanimals & @kericronin that celebrates inspiring women on the front lines of animal advocacy.

Repost from @onegreenplanet:

At just 15 years old Avalon Theisen is already a seasoned activist. She founded Conserve It Forward, an environmental education organization based in Florida when she was just nine, she has given a TedX Talk, and she has won several awards including the Florida Achievement Award from the Florida Commission on the Status of Women in 2014. Oh, and she has visited the White House to speak about environmental issues. You know, no big deal.

As a vegan who wants to educate people on the connection between environmental destruction and what’s on their plate, Avalon volunteers with Vegan Outreach and is currently developing an app that will help people plan plant-based meals. And Avalon’s passionate work couldn’t come at a more critical time. Our global food system dominated by industrial animal agriculture is at the heart of our environmental crisis. In fact, did you know animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector combined? Pretty crazy – but we can change that.

Avalon was recently featured by @unbound_project, a photo-based online project that was started by Jo-Anne McArthur (@weanimals) and Dr. Keri Cronin.

Join Avalon in her mission by sharing the #EatForThePlanet message!
You can #EatForThePlanet starting today. Just follow the three simple steps below.

1. Replace: Try to swap animal-based products in your daily diet with vegan alternatives.

2. Embrace: Add plant-based whole foods (local and organic when possible) to your diet.

3. Moderate: Limit consumption of your favorite meats like beef, lamb, pork, seafood, etc.

"The degree to which animals are exploited, abused and neglected is unfathomable and it continues because most people don’t know it exists." Shannon Keith went from protecting animal activists in the courtroom to showcasing their fight with a camera lens.

"How can we make films that will help change the world for animals?" Liz Marshall is a powerhouse filmmaker who has already achieved so much for animals and shows no signs of slowing down now.

"It’s not about you, it’s about them." We're constantly awed by the selflessness and determination of the activists we profile for this project.

Meet Kobi. Last year, at the age of 10 and after doing her own research and asking her supportive mom Lisa a lot of questions, she decided to go vegan to reduce her impact on animals and the planet. Since then, she has become involved in activism and recently spoke at the March for Aquatic Animals in Melbourne, Australia. According to her mom, Kobi feels that it's important to speak up for fish because of how little attention they receive. Before her speech, Kobi was "quite nervous, but once she got started she realized it wasn’t so bad and a few nerves are nothing compared to what the animals feel." We love you for your bravery, Kobi, and can't wait to see how much you achieve for animals!

New on Unbound: Meet three filmmakers using their craft to speak up for animals. Allison Argo, Shannon Keith, and Liz Marshall have all produced award-winning documentaries focusing on animals and on those who seek to protect them. We're in awe of these dedicated women and their drive to tell the stories that have gone unheard for so long.

When Pam Ahern saw the surprise in people's faces when they met her pig companion Edgar and saw how smart, affectionate, and curious he was, she realized that for people to fall in love with farm animals, they simply needed to meet them. That's how Edgar's Mission was born, and since then, the sanctuary has provided loving care to thousands of animals rescued from the cruelty and certain death of factory farming. Even more than that, Pam and the residents of Edgar's have opened the hearts of so many, showing people just how similar farm animals are to the animals we love and keep in our homes.
For anyone who has ever gotten to know a curious sheep, a cheeky goat, or a loving pig as an individual, the mission statement of Pam's wonderful sanctuary rings so true: “If we could live happy and healthy lives without harming others, why wouldn’t we?” Thank you for your incredible work, Pam, and we look forward to featuring you as part of the Unbound Project soon!

Happy birthday to one of the most impactful activists of our time, and one of our heroes, Dr. Jane Goodall.

We have the tools we need. Courage, determination, strength, compassion, kindness. We are making a difference. Let's keep making magic happen, together.

Young activists bearing witness to the opening day of the duck hunt in Victoria, Australia. Hunters held up dead birds, taunting protesters. Birds who fell out of reach were left to die or were collected by rescuers who attempted to save their lives or humanely euthanize them. It was an awful morning.

Jo-Anne has been documenting a series of incredible women while in Australia and we wanted to offer a sneak peak of just one of the inspiring activists who will be featured on the blog in the coming months.
Meet Avalon Llewellyn. She is a 16-year-old activist and writer who is building a community of compassionate young people through social media. Avalon is encouraging people to question, explore and follow their passions, and learn more about animal agriculture, capitalism, and government systems. She is such an impressive young woman and we can't wait to share her full story with you.
