Overview

Building an Ark: 101 Solutions to Animal Suffering is a first-of-its-kind, inspiring look at practical solutions for the humane treatment of animals and animal liberation.

Animal cruelty has many forms: factory farms, habitat destruction, animal product testing, the abuse and neglect of companion animals, the illegal trade in endangered species, unsustainable fishing, and climate change. All these create unnecessary suffering for animals and destroy animal rights.

For several decades there has been a global movement building, an ever-increasing consciousness that will soon affect animal welfare and the future of life on Earth—if it’s given time to do so. Building an Ark is the story of this movement. Extensively researched and drawing on practical examples from around the world, it provides a voice for both the animals and the humans who have dedicated their lives to building a sustainable future for all species.

The ark is ready for all to board. Individuals, action groups, schools, businesses, governments, farmers, fishers, developing nations—there’s a role for everyone on this journey. Building an Ark offers a host of solutions that, if adopted, will ensure that animals will suffer less today, and that humans and animals will share a more sustainable planet tomorrow.

Ethan Smith is a writer, animal welfare advocate, and author/editor of the anthology Softly On This Earth: Joining Those Who Are Healing Our Planet.

Guy Dauncey founded the Solutions Project and is author of several books, including Stormy Weather: 101 Solutions to Global Climate Change.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Nola Theiss
First, 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.

    An invaluable resource for a better world

    Building An Ark is a one of a kind book. Covering comprehensively the use of animals in our modern society and providing other relevant background, the first part of the book proves to be an invaluable resource for any student, animal lover or simply anyone curious about the world in which we live and our interactions with the animals and our environment. But more than an excellent reference book, it is also and above all a practical book with a second well developed part that proposes concrete, simple and reasonable actions that can easily be put in practice by individuals, governments, businesses, and other groups. The greatest strength of this book is its empowerment value: no one can read the book without feeling that they can make a positive difference in the world. The book brings a nice message of hope and compassion!
