The voice for all animals and people dedicated to a sustainable future for all species.
KLIATT - Nola TheissFirst, you will feel guilty, then you will feel responsible for doing something to relieve animal suffering, and then you will be inspired as you read 101 ways you can help. The Introduction to this well-written and well-illustrated book contains 25 two-page articles ranging from myths about the need for dairy in our diet, to life in a puppy mill, animal suffering in cosmetics, scientific experimentation on animals, and hunting, ending with articles about the power of business, government and the individual to build a global movement to end animal suffering. The second part of the book lists ten solutions for individuals, like caring for your companion animals, becoming vegetarian or vegan, and controlling pests using natural means. The authors then move on to ten solutions for action groups and how to organize to take action to deal with specific problems like providing shelter for animals, educating legislators and working together with other groups. Building an Ark concludes with a series of chapters on solutions for schools, farmers, businesses, governments, developing nations, etc., ending finally with a chapter called "Be a Solution to Animal Suffering." This book will provide inspiration for students and, as it is a call for action as well as knowledge, it may promote some interesting school projects. The notes and index as well as the many websites listed in the chapters give concrete information, and the prefaces and introduction by the authors and Jane Goodall are inspirational, too.
