What, in your opinion, is the single most important thing a person can do to help animals on this planet?

recognize their importance. respect and coexist with them. stop viewing animals as food. Be their voice because those who exploit/abuse them do not understand their language...We must raise public awareness of atrocities against animals. Too many people are turning a blind eye. People must see proof, such as videos, of animals being abused. There must be laws enforced against animal cruelty. Animal testing must be stopped and outlawed. One of the most important things we can do is teach the children. They are out future. They are open and willing to listen. If they can learn at a young age about animal cruelty, loss or habitat, exploitation, etc., then they can grow up with that impression and grow into animal advocates. I guess I went way over a single thing we can do, the bottom line is to respect life in all forms as it is a most amazing mystery and should not be taken for granted.

Why would you like to be part of an animal rights group?

I want to make a difference. It is not enough to just say that I support animal rights, or I love and respect animals. I want to fight the good fight. I want to dedicate the rest of my life to help as many animals as possible.

Have you ever engaged in animal/earth activism (demonstrations, tabling, marches etc)? Tell us about it, and please be honest. Your experience level is NOT important!

no I have not.

Do you follow any special dietary regimen?

I am an advocate of healthy living. My diet is about 90% plants based with occasional fish.

Introduction

I am passionate about all living things...I respect other forms of life. I am not more intelligent than they..we are just different. I do not judge other living things using a human standard, but I do try to understand other living beings. respect
