Planet Earth belongs to all the species on her. Unfortunately, the human species’ intelligence has been the bane of other species.
Presently man is the greatest predator, feeding on both sea and land animals. The cruelty that is meted on other animal species for the benefit of humans is untold and unwanted. Animals are hunted and killed cruelly, for example, shark fins being cut off when the shark is alive and no pre stunning prior to religious slaughter, etc etc etc
Animals are also subjected to cruel laboratory experiments in the name of the drug and cosmetic testing. But people are becoming increasingly aware of the threat of these practices to other animal species and are doing something about it.
Adopting a vegan diet and shopping cruelty free is what you can do, to declare that other animal species have the right to live and be happy on Mother Earth as well.
