This week, our team have been on the ground in North Carolina, documenting the brutal aftermath of Hurricane Florence. Images and footage featured in The @guardian's Animals Farmed series today.

We farm animals on such a scale that when disaster comes, evacuating them isn't even an option. They're left behind. Disposable.

In case you missed it: Anne Fawcett is a veterinarian, author, and lecturer on veterinary ethics and professional practice. Her blog, #smallanimaltalk, shares information about animal welfare, teaching us to better serve our companion animals.

Read how she thinks we can translate our “love” for animals into behaviour that genuinely benefits them. Link in bio.

“Most people tend to be ignorant of the processes by which food reaches their table, or if not ignorant they find it more comfortable to forget." This #ThrowbackThursday the Unbound Project is celebrating the game-changing investigative work of Ruth Harrison (1920-2000). Harrison's groundbreaking and meticulously researched book Animal Machines: The New Factory Farming System led the British government to order an investigation into factory farming practices, and inspired major improvements in animal welfare.

The photographs in Animal Machines played a powerful role in challenging the marketing of meat, eggs and dairy, which showed sanitized images of 'traditional' farms where animals frolicked in meadows.

Maggie Kuhn (1905 – 1995) was an American activist known for founding the Gray Panthers movement, after she was forced to retire from her job at the then-mandatory retirement age of 65. The Gray Panthers became known for advocating nursing home reform and fighting ageism.

Activism is a vital force in all social justice movements. Speaking up against what you know to be wrong can be difficult, but it is one of the most powerful things we can do as individuals.

"Animal welfare science has provided us with enough evidence to justify behavioural change. One of the reasons we don’t change our behaviour in the light of evidence is the overwhelming force of habit. It’s a constant, daily battle."

We could not be more proud or excited that Jo is nominated for the @rps100heroines, a project celebrating the world-changing work of women in photography!

The @unboundproject also celebrates the world-changing work of women - those changing the way we see and treat animals.

This is a photo of Yenzekile Mathebula and Leitah Mkhabela, two of the women in the @blackmambasapu. The Black Mambas now number over 30 rangers, most of whom are female, who undertake intensive training and dangerous patrols in order to disarm poachers and keep South Africa's threatened rhino population safe.

This #ThrowbackThursday we're celebrating Ada Cole, a pioneering figure in the fight to change the world for animals over 100 years ago!
Cole did not set out to be an activist - she was an ordinary citizen who, when confronted with the cruelty of the live horse export industry, took matters in to her own hands. Cole used photography and film to document what she saw and hoped that the resulting images would get others to join her campaign against these cruel practices.
