2013: The Year in Review

year_in_review_2013Join us for a look back at some highlights from 2013. We’ll hear filmmaker Karol Orzechowski describe going undercover as an animal dealer in Laos. Laura Broxson tells us how the National Animal Rights Association in Ireland convinced dozens of High Street shops in Dublin to stop selling fur. Gabriela Cowperthwaite talks about the success of her documentary Blackfish and the increasingly desperate PR responses from Seaworld.

If that’s not enough, we’ll also hear from Labour Studies professor Kendra Coulter about improving job conditions for working animals, from philosopher Richard Ryder about the day he coined the term “speciesism”, and from conservationist Douglas Neasloss about getting to know a black bear who was later killed by trophy hunters.

And as 2014 begins, we look forward to bringing you many more stories of animals and the activists who strive tirelessly on their behalf.
