Promoting a new vision for all life on Planet Earth.
We are an animal rights non-profit organization, with a bold vision for planet Earth and all of the species of beings who live on it: human and non-human animals sharing this planet in peace and harmony. We believe that this Earth belongs to ALL beings who live on it, and they deserve to share its resources equally. The human race, rather than dominating and harming all other species and the planet itself, should take full responsibility and protect them. Because it's our planet, and theirs too!
In the year 2020, planet Earth is in bad shape. A global pandemic, rapidly increasing global warming, civil unrest everywhere, and all animal species - 8 millions of them - being used and abused by the hands of one species: the 'Human' race. We believe it all starts there. All pandemics come from eating animals (in addition to the other major diseases that are plaguing our race, such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer), animal agriculture is the number one cause for global warming (in addition to water pollution, land pollution and deforestation), and the attitude of systematized oppression of other human beings starts with the attitude of systematized oppression of non-human beings: animals.
Trillions of animals are separated from their families and offspring every year, caged, abused, mutilated and eventually brutally killed, all to supply some human need or other. When looking at the sheer numbers, well-oiled systems and cruelty involved - it is a Holocaust, no less, and it is happening every minute of every day on this ailing planet.
This map shows areas of systematic animal abuse around the world, based on human population density (with purple representing the most dense, and white representing the least dense areas):
Nonetheless, we have hope that the day will come when this will all be different. No animal will be 'farmed' or kept in confinement against their will. No animal will be used, abused and killed by humans, for any purpose. And all animals will be left to live their lives as they see fit, with their families and offspring. Factory farms, slaughterhouses, testing labs, rodeos, circuses, zoos and other places that confine animals today, will be a 'horror show of the past', and will be replaced by animal sanctuaries which will offer any animal who wants it, care and freedom for the rest of their lives. And then, everything else will fall into place as well.
This may sound like a utopian dream, but the process has already begun: more and more humans are ditching the cruelty inherent in using animals and their products, and transition to a plant-based, vegan lifestyle. And animal sanctuaries, that give a permanent loving home to animals rescued from factory farms and other human abuse, are popping up all around the world!
This map shows animal sanctuaries around the world. Watch as our vision slowly comes to life!

We work to realize this vision through the following worldwide activities, that are aimed at giving animals back their rights:
The National Animal Rights Day (NARD) is an annual day observed in a growing number of countries around the world every June, for the purpose of giving a voice to all animals and raising awareness for their rights. It's "Memorial Day" and "Independence Day" for the animals, combined.
The Declaration of Animal Rights is the ultimate document detailing the rights all animals have and should have, to live a happy and free life, on their own terms. It has been translated to 20 languages, and signed by more than 20,000 people around the world so far.
