Description

"This book belongs on every animal lover's shelf -- and it's a particularly great gift for young people who are on fire to save animals but are unsure where to start. Hooray!!" --Sy Montgomery, author of The Good Good Pig and The Soul of an Octopus

The Animal Lover's Guide to Changing the World is the inspiring, accessible, and empowering book for everyone who loves animals and wants to live a more animal-friendly life, even if they aren't ready to join a movement or give up bacon.

With more than 7.5 billion people on the planet, wildlife is going extinct at the fastest rate since the dinosaurs. Three to four million dogs and cats are killed in shelters every year; billions of chickens, pigs, and cows are killed for food; and countless animals are killed in research labs or their habitat. The numbers are daunting, but there's good news too! Even one person truly can make a difference without breaking the bank.

With Stephanie Feldstein's straightforward and encouraging guidance, readers will learn how to take action to create a better world for the animals we love. It starts with changes as simple as taking a shorter shower, skipping meat once a week, wearing "this" not "that," and extends all the way to online activism and politics.

The animals need us; so let's get on with some world changing!
