This International Sloth Day show features an interview with zoologist Dr. Rebecca Cliffe, founder and director of the Sloth Conservation Foundation. We also welcome 13-year-old entrepreneur and animal advocate Sir Darius Brown of Beaux and Paws who sews and donates handmade bow ties for shelter animals to help them get adopted.
This show includes a feature interview with Emily Wilson, the founder and head chef at Living Tree Foods. We discuss her background as an animal rights lawyer and her passion for affordable, delicious, and local vegan cheese products. We also hear a story from pattrice jones discussing her first time bringing ducks to Vine Sanctuary and the assumptions we make about non-human animals based on the narrative that animals are motivated by reproduction and survival, rather than love, eros, and community.
In this show, we have a feature interview with compassionate horse carer and author Ren Hurst, on honouring consent with horses and other animals as well as the effect of domestication on nonhuman animals and humans and Linda Bakker from Wildlife Rescue Association who speak on the displacement of bird populations as a result of the wildfires in the Pacific Northwest.
