A string of environmental catastrophes confront the planet. Oceans are being poisoned and raped, forests are being trashed and with them our biodiversity – plants and wild animals. Soil is degrading and deserts spreading, water and air are being polluted and fresh water is disappearing. It is vandalism on an industrial scale and each act threatens the sustainability of life. All are pressing but the most


immediate is global warming, which has the potential to make human life on Earth impossible. One common thread binds these


tragedies together. Diet! Meat and dairy livestock are at the heart of environmental collapse on land and overfishing is killing the oceans.


Governments are scared to confront the


meat, dairy and fish industries, environmental organisations nibble around the edges and everyone is afraid of losing support by recommending the one thing that can make an immediate difference. Change your diet! Viva! is not afraid to shout it out – give


up meat, dairy and fish or we will not have a world worth inheriting by anyone. We have helped to slash the number of


ducks, turkeys and pigs slaughtered and eaten in the UK and overall meat consumption is down since 2005. We have almost ended the sale of wildlife sold as ’exotic’ meat and we are on course to make Britain foie-grasfree. The need is urgent, the science


overwhelming and the arguments utterly compelling.


We’ve achieved as much as we have by exposing the cruelty of modern farming with our undercover investigations. We have shouted the results from the roof tops and people have listened. You can help to keep us shouting by supporting Viva! and adding your weight to ours. Caring is simply not enough – action is needed to secure a safe future for our children.
