animals nature veganism

Welcome to animals, nature, veganism. We are raised in a society where animal captivity, exploitation and cruelty are normalized to the point where most do not question the morality or injustice of it all.

Through no fault of our own, we are (often) raised contributing to animal injustice and to believe that it is ‘normal’ to participate in acts such as consuming animal products or visiting captive wildlife - which should not to be confused with ‘common’, as it is by percentage ‘common’ to participate in anti-animal acts, but it is by no means normal.

In the words of Optimus Prime, freedom is the right of all sentient beings.

Note: every post I make is always categorised to either 'animals', 'nature' or 'veganism'. Feel free to search the tags for your topic of interest.

Climate change is pulling the sea ice out from under polar bears’ feet, forcing them to swim longer distances to find food and habitat. Long-distance swimming puts polar bears at risk of drowning due to fatigue or rough seas. 

A report published by the World Watch Institute in 2009 revealed that greenhouse gases produced by livestock comprise 51 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.
Methane gas, the gas produced most fervently by livestock, traps 100 times more heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide within a 5 year period, and 72 times more within a 20 year period. The good news is that methane also leaves the atmosphere within a decade, whereas carbon dioxide takes several decades or even centuries. This means that a drastic shift away from raising livestock offers a very real hope that we can curb global warming.

Go Green Tip 23: Don’t eat fish

Seafood is a popular, healthy, sensible and guilt-free choice… or is it? 80% of the world fish stocks are over exploited or exploited to their maximum & this could cause unacceptable damage to the oceans ecosystem with potential long-term negative effects.

Dolphins, marine turtles, seabirds, sharks, juvenile fish, fish with little commercial value, corals, starfish - billions of unwanted animals are caught every year by fishing boats then discarded dead or dying back into the ocean. Known as bycatch, the incidental capture of these so-called “non-target species” is a major fisheries management problem, wasting fishermen’s time and hundreds of millions of dollars in damaged gear and inefficient fishing methods.
It’s also one of the greatest threats to the marine environment, wasting a valuable natural resource and causing dramatic declines in populations of many marine species. As such, WWF is working on bycatch as a priority conservation issue.

ORCA MOTHER PUSHING ITS DEAD CALF

this young female orca carry her dead calf in her jaws for a week before she releases it to express her grieving. There is a 40% mortality rate amongst setchean (mammals) in Norway.
Pollution that the plankton eat, which the orca feed on, comes out through the mothers milk, leading to poisoning of the calf from the ingestion of the milk.

  • Meat eater: what about the people who pick YOUR vegetables?
  • Vegan: Wait, what do you mean MY vegetables? don't you eat vegetables as well? What are you doing for these peoples rights other than using their struggles as a convenient "gotcha card" in attempts to silence vegans from talking about non human oppression? anything? And I'm guessing since you care so much about migrant workers in poor conditions, you are doing everything in your power to fight for those working in slaughterhouses and meat packing facilities since they are known to be one of the most dangerous and unsafe work places in the entire world, yes?
  • Meat eater: Well...
  • Vegan: Don't you think you should spend a little less time trying to belittle the efforts of people who are genuinely trying to cause the least amount of damage to animals, the environment and humans, and spend more time trying to make an effort of your own?
  • Meat eater: um, I mean...
  • Meat eater: bacon lol

Anonymous asked:

I am becoming a vegetarian. I like fishing because I find it nice just being able to sit and enjoy the sounds of nature, also it's exciting when you finally get a bite! But I don't like the fact the in order to catch the fish you have to yank a hook into their mouth :( Also I always put the fish back into their home. My question is what is your opinion on fishing for sport and recreation?

I don’t support it at all!!

Catch and release fishing is cruelty disguised as “sport.” Studies show that fish who are caught and then returned to the water suffer such severe physiological stress that they often die of shock. When fish are handled, the protective coating on their bodies is disturbed. These and other injuries make fish easy targets for predators once they are returned to the water.

Fish feel pain because, like all animals, they have nerves. Hooked fish struggle out of fear and physical pain, desperate to breathe. Even though fish don’t have the same brain structures that humans do—fish do not have a neocortex, for example Dr. Ian Duncan reminds us that we “have to look at behaviour and physiology,” not just anatomy. “It’s possible for a brain to evolve in different ways,” he says. “That’s what is happening in the fish line. It’s evolved in some other ways in other parts of the brain to receive pain.”

Once fish are hauled out of their aqueous environment and into ours, they begin to suffocate, and their gills often collapse. In commercial fishing, fish’s swim bladders can rupture because of the sudden change in pressure.

Fishing is far from a harmless pastime. Please try alternative activities, such as hiking, camping, and canoeing.

Spot on as always! ^
