Fueled by a dedicated group of animal activists, AnimaNaturalis continues to effect positive change for animals in Latin America. In this interview, we connect with Paula Gilbert who provides a behind the scenes peek into the work of the organization and the treatment of animals in Ecuador, in particular. Hear how Gilbert and others use creative — and sometimes even surprising — tactics to challenge practices such as bull- and cockfighting. Listen in, too, for information about AnimaNaturalis’ appeals to Ecuador’s constitutional assembly. In the aftermath of those appeals, the organization wonders, should the creation of a political party for animals be the next step?
