How wildlife trade is linked to coronavirus

And why the disease first appeared in China.

As of early March 2020, a new coronavirus, called COVID-19, is in more than 70 countries and has killed more than 3,100 people, the vast majority in China. That's where the virus emerged back in December 2019. This isn't a new phenomenon for China; in 2003, the SARS virus also emerged there, and under similar circumstances, before spreading around the world and killing nearly 800.

Both SARS and COVID-19 are in the "coronavirus" family, and both appear to have emerged from animals in China's notorious wildlife markets. Experts had long predicted that these markets, known to be potential sources of disease, would enable another outbreak. The markets, and the wildlife trade that supports them, are the underlying problem of these pandemics; until China solves that problem, more are likely to emerge.


How wildlife trade is linked to coronavirus

NOTE: As our expert Peter Li points out in the video, “The majority of the people in China do not eat wildlife animals. Those people who consume these wildlife animals are the rich and the powerful –a small minority.” This video explains how the people of China are themselves victims of the conditions that led to coronavirus. The virus is affecting many different countries and cultures, and there is never justification for xenophobia or racism.

13 Must-Drive VEGAN Electric Cars

These 13 electric cars are eco and vegan-friendly. Innovators in the automotive field, brands like Tesla, Nissan, and Porsche are paving the way for the future of cars. As people are waking up to the climate crisis, many are concerned about the impact of gasoline cars. Despite criticisms against them, electric cars have been shown to be 3x less polluting than its fuel-burning counterparts.

Leather interiors are also being overhauled by car companies. Leather poses health risks to tannery workers, and to the environment. The chromium used to dye animal hides is carcinogenic according to several health agencies. Kinder to animals as well, vegan leather and recycled plastics are making their way into the latest car models.

Extinction Rebellion History 2018-2019 ... Join Us!

We are facing an unprecedented global emergency. Life on Earth is in crisis: scientists agree we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown, and we are in the midst of a mass extinction of our own making. scientistsforxr.earth/planetary-emergency

On 31st October 2018, we assembled on Parliament Square in London to announce a Declaration of Rebellion against the UK Government. We were expecting a couple of hundred people. Instead, 1500 came to participate in peaceful civil disobedience. The energy was contagious! The next few weeks were a whirlwind. Six thousand of us converged on London to peacefully block five major bridges across the Thames. We planted trees in the middle of Parliament Square, and dug a hole there to bury a coffin representing our future. We super-glued ourselves to the gates of Buckingham Palace as we read a letter to the Queen. Our actions generated huge national and international publicity and, as news spread, our ideas connected with tens of thousands of people around the world. The XR project was resonating with a deeply felt need for community and solidarity. “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for,” we chanted! Dozens of countries now have groups springing up, from the Solomon Islands to Australia, from Spain to South Africa, the US to India..

HOGWOOD: a modern horror story. Coming Soon! Full Trailer.

You’re being lied to. Each day, you are bombarded with messages reassuring you that the UK has the highest welfare standards in the world. Through careful marketing and misleading labels, we are led to believe that farmed animals are well cared for and that eating meat is natural, normal and necessary. It’s time to uncover the truth. This is the film the meat industry doesn’t want you to see.

Narrated by Game of Thrones actor Jerome Flynn, HOGWOOD: a modern horror story has already sent ripples throughout the animal agriculture industry. It sparked a nationwide Day of Action where thousands of people came together to protest outside 150 Tesco stores. Over 70,000 people signed a petition urging Tesco to drop Hogwood. It became one of Viva!’s most far-reaching campaigns to date.

The film will be the culmination of months of investigative work by the Viva! team who worked tirelessly to expose the kind of unspeakable cruelty to animals many mistakenly think we have consigned to the history books.

It shows the concerted efforts to silence Viva! and exposes the negligence and inaction by government bodies and corporations alike. The film follows the Viva! Campaigns team as they enter some of Britain’s biggest factory farms for the very first time and sheds new light on the shocking things that lie beyond the public gaze. It explores why factory farming is supported and follows the brave fight to expose the truth and change the world.

What’s killing millions of bees in Brazil?

Brazil may be the biggest market for highly hazardous pesticides in the world, according to a new analysis of 2018 industry data. Almost two thirds of the toxic chemicals sold in Brazil were used on soya, grown to meet global demand for animal feed.

As part of an Unearthed investigation into the global trade of highly hazardous pesticides, we sent a video journalist to the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul to speak to beekeepers dealing with the chemical fallout from Brazil's soya boom.

Do ENVIRONMENTALISTS Actually Need to DITCH MEAT?

Is it possible to be a meat-eating environmentalist? As the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has warned us, we have less than 10 years to mitigate climate catastrophe. The report called for “unprecedented changes” to all aspects of society to prevent warming beyond this level. Should ditching meat be part of this?

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the global livestock industries account for 7.1 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent per year, representing 14.5% of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. It also notes that 26% of the world's arable land is used for livestock, not to mention that 33% of all cropland is dedicated to growing animal feed. Deforestation is a huge issue, as 1.5 soccer fields are cleared in the Amazon Rainforest every hour to make room for grazing cattle.

There is also the issue of water availability - raising animals for food uses 1/3 of our potable water supply. Yet, 700 million people across the globe suffer from water scarcity.

Ocean dead zones have been linked to livestock manure and agricultural run-off. As ocean temperatures rise, coral reefs are dying and the water is becoming more acidic as a result. Ocean acidification makes it harder for marine ecosystems to thrive.

‘Gunda’ Review: A Visionary Case for Veganism in Black and White

Joaquin Phoenix serves as an executive producer on Viktor Kossakovsky’s mesmerizing look at the lives of farm animals.

More experience than movie, “Gunda” is a visionary case for veganism in black and white. Russian filmmaker Viktor Kossakovsky’s mesmerizing achievement removes humans from the picture to magnify the small moments in the lives of various farm animals, with his eponymous pig at its center. Over the course of 90 hypnotic minutes, his roving camera observes Gunda and her piglets, a handful of chickens, and a smattering of cows simply going about their lives on an unspecified farmland.

Devoid of music or any other obvious artifice, “Gunda” neither aims to document animal consciousness or anthropomorphize it. Instead, Kossakovsky’s fascinating non-narrative experiment burrows into the center of his subject’s nervous system, meeting the creatures on their own terms in a remarkable plea for empathy that only implores carnivores to think twice by implication. (With vegan activist Joaquin Phoenix signed on as an executive producer, it doesn’t need to make its message overt anyway.)

Joaquin Phoenix Rescues Mother Cow and Newborn Calf Day after Academy Awards Win

BREAKING: A day after winning the Academy Award for Best Actor—and subsequently making a headlining acceptance speech in which he spoke to the plight of mother cows and their babies used in animal agriculture—Joaquin Phoenix helped to liberate a cow and her newborn calf from a Los Angeles slaughterhouse and bring them to Farm Sanctuary, where they will live out the rest of their lives in peace. Phoenix named the mother Liberty and her daughter Indigo.

Phoenix said, “I never thought I’d find friendship in a slaughterhouse, but meeting Anthony [President/CEO of the slaughterhouse] and opening my heart to his, I realize we might have more in common than we do differences. Without his act of kindness, Liberty and her baby calf, Indigo, would have met a terrible demise.”

Phoenix was joined at the slaughterhouse by his fiancée and fellow activist Rooney Mara, both his and Mara’s mothers, Earthlings Director Shaun Monson, Los Angeles Animal Save Founder Amy Jean Davis, and Farm Sanctuary President and Co-founder Gene Baur. The group worked with employees onsite to rescue Liberty—who had recently given birth at the slaughterhouse—and her newborn calf Indigo.

Phoenix added, “My hope is, as we watch baby Indigo grow up with her mom Liberty at Farm Sanctuary, that we’ll always remember that friendships can emerge in the most unexpected places; and no matter our differences, kindness and compassion should rule everything around us.”

It’s hard to imagine an experience more terrifying for a mother—or for her baby—than to give birth at a slaughterhouse. Witnessing the birth tugged at the heartstrings of the slaughterhouse owner—and not for the first time. This is the fifth mother-child bovine rescue secured by Los Angeles Animal Save from Manning Beef.

Phoenix concluded by saying, “Although we will continue to fight for the liberation of all animals who suffer in these oppressive systems, we must take pause to acknowledge and celebrate the victories, and the people who helped achieve them. Shaun Monson, Amy Jean Davis, and the entire LA Animal Save community, have taken their pain of bearing witness and turned it into effective, diplomatic advocacy for the voiceless. As a result, Liberty and Indigo will never experience cruelty or the touch of a rough hand.”

Special thanks to documentary filmmaker Shaun Monson for producing and directing this beautiful video.

Joaquin Phoenix Is Producing A New Documentary On Animal Sentience

Joaquin Phoenix is serving as an executive producer on Gunda, a new documentary focusing on pig sentience.

Created by award-winning Russian filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky, the film examines the daily life of a pig and her three farm animal companions: two cows and a one-legged chicken.

Speaking to Screen Daily, Phoenix said he was “deeply moved by the film” and described it as a “visceral meditation on existence” that he hopes will change the way people perceive animal intelligence.

Gunda is a mesmerizing perspective on sentience within animal species, normally – and perhaps purposely – hidden from our view,” the actor explained.

How Did MEAT Cause The CORONAVIRUS?

As of February 18th, the Coronavirus has over 73,000 reported cases in 25 countries, with most cases stemming from mainland China. Now named COVID-19, the virus originated in Wuhan at a seafood market that also sold wild game - including bats, civets, snakes, and foxes. Scientists have identified a 96.2% genetic similarity between COVID-19 and a bat virus, and a 79.5% genetic similarity to SARS.

Viruses can mutate and jump from species to species. Due to the outbreak's ties to the Wuhan seafood market, it has been shut down temporarily. Environmental activists have called for a permanent ban on such markets, due to the cramped and unsanitary conditions the animals are forced to stay in - a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses.

Other major disease outbreaks have had ties to animal product consumption. Mad Cow disease, also known as Creutzfeldt-Jakob’s disease, originated in - you guessed it - cows. They were fed diseased sheep, infected by a prion called Scrapie, which also caused neurological damage. Banned from selling the sheep meat, farmers fed these diseased "waste products" to its cow herds, which mutated and infected humans.

Salmonella and e. Coli are among some of the other risks of consuming animal products. In April 2019, an e. Coli outbreak linked to ground beef sickened 209 people in 10 states. In 2019, the CDC linked minor outbreaks of salmonella to ground beef, frozen tuna, and ground turkey .

As disease crises and health issues continue to surface, the need to address the treatment of animals is paramount. A global shift away from animal meat could save countless lives.

Measuring our impact on the planet

Joaquin Phoenix has lived up to his surname. Rising from the flames – or, in this case, emerging from the bright white stage lights – he stood before the world: exposed, authentic, vulnerable. Phoenix at Sunday’s Oscar awards ceremony treated us to a uniquely raw, real and rare moment.

Arguably the hottest person on our worryingly overheated planet right now, the world hangs on his every word. His tone was serious and sombre, his words tough and true. Phoenix was described by The Guardian’s Steve Rose as ‘Hollywood’s poster boy of progress’. This backhanded compliment holds some truth.

We’re all aware of the ‘Attenborough Effect’. In the space of just a year, and in large part thanks to David Attenborough’s Blue Planet and Our Planet series, over half of the UK population now uses fewer disposable plastics. The world is waking up to the truth. With each passing year plastic pollution is plummeting and conscious consumerism is on the up.

Joaquin Phoenix Calls Out Injustice in Passionate Oscar Speech

At the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony in Hollywood, activist Joaquin Phoenix delivered an impassioned plea during his Best Actor acceptance speech, imploring the audience to consider the role humanity has had in the world’s injustices, including the ongoing suffering of animals on factory farms.

Said Phoenix, “I think we’ve become very disconnected from the natural world. Many of us are guilty of an egocentric worldview and we believe that we’re the center of the universe. We go into the natural world and we plunder it for its resources. We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow and steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable. Then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal.” More here.

KFC trials more vegan chicken by introducing Beyond Fried Chicken to locations in Nashville, Tennessee and Charlotte, North Carolina. The Swiss public will vote on a proposed constitutional amendment that guarantees better welfare for factory-farmed animals.

Sussex is now the first UK council to ban the fishing practice called trawling, in order to mitigate climate change. France will ban the controversial, commonplace practice of culling male chicks by live-shredding them. The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus a global health emergency, and it has been linked to wildlife markets.

Brits must cut their beef, lamb, and dairy consumption by 20 percent, according to a new environmental report. Beyond Burgers are now available in more than 1,700 Denny’s restaurants across the U.S. and Canada.

Meet the vegan sensations from Sheffield who now have their own TV show

Sheffield pals Ian Theasby and Henry Firth’s ideas for tasty vegan meals are a big hit, with 26 million watching their YouTube channel and their books selling well. Now they have their own ITV cookery show. Catherine Scott reports.

Less than a decade ago, saying you were vegan would send a shiver down any self-respecting meat eater, who feared they might be sucked into a vegan cult.

Not anymore. ITV’s decision to have the first vegan-only cookery show on a Sunday morning shows just how far we have come and how mainstream and acceptable vegan diets have become. The show, aptly named Living on the Veg, is presented by Henry Firth and Ian Theasby. In their early thirties, with trimmed beards and a jovial, easygoing manner, they epitomise a whole new generation of vegans. The friends, who met when they were 11-year-olds growing up in Sheffield, started their YouTube channel BOSH .TV! nearly four years ago after they both became vegan. They have two million followers, making it the biggest plant-based online food channel and they have three best selling cookery books – the latest BOSH! Healthy Vegan was published last month.

Meghan Markle Gives MEAT the Royal Snub

Meghan Markle is a proud flexitarian - someone who follows a mostly plant-based diet but occasionally eats meat and dairy. She told Best Health in 2016: “I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends. But at the same time, it’s all about balance.”

While Meghan and Prince Harry may have stepped away from their royal duties, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex still hold great influence. From Meghan's vegan wedding reception dress to her affinity for vegan cheese, here are 5 reasons why Meghan Markle's flexitarianism matters.

DOUBLESPEAK: Meat and Milk's BIG Secret

Doublespeak is language that obscures the meaning of words, in an effort to make the truth sound more agreeable. The term is inspired by George Orwell’s 1949 dystopian novel 1984, and since then, doublespeak has found its way into marketing efforts - particularly in the animal agriculture industry.

The meat industry uses doublespeak by using terms such as “humane” when referring to slaughter. The dairy industry uses flowery language like “caring dairy” and imagery of cows in green pastures in their advertisements. This stands in stark contrast to the reality of factory farmed milk, and the abuse that has been revealed at operations like Fairlife. Eggs are marketed with newspeak, too. “Cage-Free” eggs makes it sound like the birds have total freedom, when most are still in overcrowded factory farm conditions. The fishing industry uses terms like “dolphin safe” tuna, and Marine Stewardship Council (or MSC) certified environmentally-friendly fish when these terms are incredibly difficult to regulate. Due to bycatch and overfishing, neither of those promises hold any merit.

Are we ignoring warnings on climate change?

Our oceans are heating up, and fast. Sea temperatures in 2019 were the highest on record. Oceans are the clearest measure of climate change, since they absorb 90 per cent of the world's heat. Warmer seas mean more intense storms, droughts, floods and wildfires. The study is the latest warning on the climate crisis facing our planet. However, greenhouse gas emissions are still at record levels. Are we starting to tune out to the constant stream of bad news on the climate? If so, how should we change the conversation? Presenter: Martine Dennis


Are we ignoring warnings on climate change? | Inside Story

As Australia's ruinous wildfires continue to spread, so does disinformation. There has been fake news, conspiracy theories on social media, and even claims the fires were the work of 200 arsonists. A significant amount of this content went viral, sowing confusion and discord in an already rattled population. While much of this has been the work of trolls, mainstream media outlets such as Rupert Murdoch’s Sky News and The Australian newspaper have also been criticised for their coverage. The debate is particularly contentious in a country where climate change has long been a controversial topic that often figures as an election issue. In this show, we will hear the latest news from the epicenter of the disaster, dig into the disinformation campaigns and media controversy, and look at how indigenous people are responding to the devastation.

10 Must-Watch Nature and Animal Documentaries in 2020!

Documentaries have become one of the most powerful ways to shine a light on various issues taking place around the world and inspire people to get involved. Through these influential films, we can enter into another world that we wouldn’t usually have access to, from the Antarctic tundra to the deepest parts of the sea.

As technology and filmmakers become more skilled, documentaries become even more powerful. They are able to show every intricate detail, from a melting glacier to each hair on an endangered orangutan’s head, making these issues a reality and bringing them to the forefront of the viewer’s mind.

For those of us who are fighting for our planet, documentaries provide an outlet to inspire others to think with compassion, show respect for the earth, and make a change. Read on for a list of the most inspiring documentaries that were released in 2019 to enjoy with friends, family, and loved ones this year.

1. Our Planet


Our Planet | Official Trailer [HD] | Netflix

This was, perhaps, the most monumental documentary of 2019. Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, “Our Planet” takes viewers to some of the most beautiful parts of the world and introduces the extraordinary wildlife who live there. The documentary opens our eyes to the fact that these places, and the animals who call it home, are severely threatened by human action. The never-before-seen footage of walruses tumbling to their death as the videographers helplessly watched on shook the nation and opened up a fresh conversation around the perils of climate change. 

2. Our Planet - Behind the Scenes
3. Ice on Fire
4. Sea of Shadows

5. The Animal People


The Animal People - Official Trailer [HD] (2019)

Executive produced by vegan actor and environmentalist Joaquin Phoenix, “The Animal People” follows six animal rights activists who find themselves indicted as terrorists for leading a controversial campaign to shut down the largest animal testing laboratory in the world. The feature documentary features extensive interviews that span more than a decade and rare archival footage of surveillance recordings, wiretaps, and government documents, depicting an unnerving portrait of what happens when activism challenges the institutions of power.

6. Penguins

7. Meat: A Threat to Our Planet


Meat: A Threat to Our Planet? Trailer | BBC Trailers

In this BBC documentary, science and wildlife presenter Liz Bonnin travels the world to highlight the dark truths behind the meat industry and the impact it has on our environment. “Meat: A Threat to Our Planet” takes viewers from Texas to the Amazon rainforest to unveil the negative effects of meat production, like biodiversity loss, deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions.

Apocalypse Cow: How Meat Killed the Planet, C4 — a radical take-down of food farming

British writer and activist George Monbiot on how the food industry is destroying the living world

Vegetarians and virtuous eaters should be warned that any feelings of smugness or superiority will quickly dissipate on watching George Monbiot’s radical take-down of food farming. Those free-roaming chickens and blissfully wandering dairy cows take up far too much land, for a start. A scientist proposes that one day his grandchildren will be amazed and disgusted to learn that human beings actually used to eat eggs. Even idyllic organic farms have too great an environmental footprint, when the growth in the human population is taken into account. “The food industry is destroying the living world,” Monbiot proclaims.

Movie Review: Joaquin Phoenix’s The Animal People

I tell you without hesitation that The Animal People is the most important documentary of 2019 without a doubt in my mind. It way very well be the most important film of the decade not only in animal rights but within anyone that thinks free speech is important for a just society.

The film highlights the literal trials and tribulations of SHAC Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty an animal rights organization dedicated to shutting down Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) a contractor of animal testing for various industries most often pharmaceutical.

We follow the story of SHAC and its founders/activists Lauren Gazzola, Kevin Kjonaas, Jake Conroy, Josh Harper, Andy Stepanian, and Darius Fullmer as they give HLS the hell they deserve. The FBI, State Police, Local Police and an entire alphabet soup of government orgs and entities conspire to twist and subvert the truth. The story of SHAC and what happen to those in it that were placed on trial is both a warning message and a message of hope to stand against what we are still up against even today in the animal rights movement. There’s so much I wish I could discuss that happens in the film but I don’t want to spoil it for you. It’s a must watch if you’re any kind of activist but especially an animal rights activist so go watch it right now. You’ll cry, get rightfully angry and feel goosebumps through out as brave activists smash labs and rescue animals, get hurt by police and railroaded in the courts.

I'm very grateful they had me on to share my perspective. I wish I had more time to go over more points and also wish I worded a few things differently and overall pushed a bit harder, but overall I think it was a great segment and I will learn from it for next time.

Where do you get your protein ... a new eBook from Hench Herbivore

This book was designed to finally put an end to that age old question about where vegans get their protein from. I talk through my journey from being the biggest meat eater that most people have ever met to where I am today, some misconceptions about protein, how much protein you really need and where to get it from. I then present you with 30 delicious, healthy, high protein recipes including:

  • Morning meals
  • Dips and spread
  • Soups, chillies, stews and more
  • Salads and nibbles
  • Hearty mains
  • Baked savoury delights
  • And healthy treats.

All recipes have full macros included and the book can be downloaded on multiple devices.

While it’s true that the recipes in this book are perfect for those requiring a larger protein intake (e.g. strength and physique athletes), they are based around healthful whole plant foods, making them suitable for all. My aim for this book is to show you just how easy it is for ANYONE to meet their protein needs with plants so every recipe was created with that in mind. I didn’t want to create just another cookbook; I wanted to create something that really, finally, made it clear that protein is not an issue!
