This picture by the Wild Horse Freedom Federation reveals the heartbreaking reality of roundups.
Animal agriculture certainly takes an enormous toll on our planet. It consumes around 70 percent of the Earth’s freshwater supplies, and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that livestock production is responsible for 14.5 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions while other organizations like the Worldwatch Institute have estimated it could be as much as 51 percent. Not only that but it also occupies around 50 percent of the world’s land. This destructive industry is also having a devastating impact on wildlife. In the U.S. alone, livestock grazing impacts 14 percent of threatened or endangered animals, but some of the most frequent victims of…

Leading the crusade for a sensual revolution, Pamela Anderson embraces a kind but sexy life.
By Anna Griffin, Editor In Chief. Photography by Emma Dunlavey.
Return To Freedom, a beautiful, wild horse sanctuary deep in the hills of Lompoc, California, is the tranquil location for our Pamela Anderson cover story. These pastures are rich with majestic American Mustangs who have had a harrowing journey to get here. Most are unfamiliar with their plight; how they are being brutally driven in herds from their natural grazing lands by the Bureau of Land Management; rounded up to be placed in incarceration until sold at auction, usually for slaughter and shipment across the borders of Mexico and Canada.
A serendipitous turn of events has led us all to this idyllic location and its inhabitants, each of us inspired to raise awareness and create an impact in the form of a beautiful photo…

Just six months ago, the oil industry — with the support of the Obama administration — seemed unstoppable as it pushed for new offshore drilling projects in the Arctic and Atlantic oceans. But things have changed quickly.
There is a new law in Virginia, one countless people fought hard for. It solidifies that a private animal shelter is “a facility operated for the purpose of finding permanent adoptive homes for animals.” Nothing terribly revolutionary about that, right? It’s pretty much the definition of a shelter. So why did Virginia need this law? Why did it pass the House and the Senate with overwhelming support? Why did animal welfare advocates breathe a collective sigh of relief when this happened? Because People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has its headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia and, at those headquarters, they kill thousands of animal each year.
In 2014 PETA received 2,631 animals — 2,324 of them ended up dead. Let that number sink in for a minute. 2,324animals dead at the hands of PETA in one year. PETA fought hard against SB1381, the now law that defines what…

Palm oil is ubiquitous in our society. It’s in everything from lip balm to cookies and it’s even a source of biofuel. But where does this oil come from? Well, palm oil is harvested on large palm plantations in Southeast Asia, primarily on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra, where thousands of hectares of rainforest have been clearcut and burned to make room for it. An estimated 300 football fields of forest are cleared every hour to make way for palm oil, just to give you a sense of how damaging this industry is. Adding insult to injury, peat bogs (known as massive carbon sinks) are being drained to pave the way for palm oil and … to put it simply, that’s not good, folks.
