Why does this group interest you?

This group interests me because I have been a bit more conscious about the environment and animal treatment's since I was very young. Maybe it started when I thought at first I was at a petting zoo but it was in fact a corral in Chino that my father took me when I was young. I also am studying to be a social ecologist because of my big interest in the environment and also culture's affects on it and also people and culture for that matter.

Would you like to share any suggestions for ways this group can better protect animals?

Well I believe the change will have to come from the consumers. So awareness and information be it subtle or in-your-face to the public on how to change where their money goes is prize.

Has your desire to help animals led you to make any dietary or lifestyle changes?

Very much so. I have been an on and off vegan, only eating meats rarely and mostly for cultural dishes, but mostly keeping out of my diet. I also base many of my actions on the possible impact on the environment and animals. Also, yes that is a leather jacket in my profile picture and I personally find it more environmentally friendly to wear that hand-me-down then to purchase a whole new jacket.
