Fur trim is not a by-product. Animals raised on fur farms are kept in filthy wire cages and killed at under a year old in order to make the fur trim that adorns the hoods of so many winter coats today. As the temperatures drop, please choose a coat without fur trim. The animals trapped in this industry have no autonomy, but our choices have the power to stop this cycle of cruelty. #furfree

The New York City Compassion Arts Festival kicked off today with the world premiere of "And the Hummingbird Says..." cried like a baby, it was so moving. I don't know how to describe it but it's based on the life, work and legacy of Wangari Maathai. Conceived by Mihoko Suzuki and Martin Rowe. JUST STUNNING :)
So proud that this is co-hosted by the Culture and Animals Foundation too.

We are so often shielded from the reality of everyday violence against animals. We owe it to them to tell their stories and even show their bodies to make their suffering tangible.
.
But this type of activism is exhausting, emotionally draining work. It's so important to take time to rebuild your strength. Take breaks. Recharge. We're in this for the long haul.

We know the impact that farming animals has on the environment, on us, and on these individuals. The world does not have a food shortage problem, we are feeding enough edible crops to livestock to fill every hungry human belly. We can do things differently. #WorldFoodDay

Yesterday, @Gucci committed to going fur-free.
.
Around the world, tens of millions of animals are still farmed and killed for their fur each year. Animals spend their lives in cages, injuries go untreated, siblings live on the bodies of dead cage mates. Having brands like Gucci use their platform to advocate for these animals is an incredible step forward.
.
We Animals images have been used in fur-free campaigns around the globe. To help us keep telling these animals' stories, become a We Animals supporter today: link in bio.

Congratulations to Italian animal protection group LAV, @hsiglobal, and all of the other groups that made this victory possible!

Historic moment here at We Animals. Our Comms Director Sayara Thurston adopted Seymour 4 years ago and he's a pretty skittish guy. This is the first time he has ever sat on her lap! Problem is: laptop. I think this means Sayara has to roll with this and just call it a day.

Repost from @ayearofcaptivity: Day 283

An excerpt from Captive: "If you’d like to feel, viscerally, the urgency with which we need to remove intelligent, sentient animals from the choicelessness and confinement of zoos, spend a full day at a zoo. Zoo visits typically range from one to three hours. We leave because we’re done, we’ve seen it all, and it’s time to go somewhere else we choose to be."

Captive is now available on Amazon. Link in @ayearofcaptivity profile.

This is how we can choose to treat animals ❤ Given freedom and love, turkeys are curious, friendly animals with huge personalities.

Every year, @farmsanctuary holds a Thanksgiving celebration where their rescued turkeys are the guests of honour.
