   schema:description ""Contemporary earth and animal activists often seem to think and operate independently. The key reason for this lack of collaboration may be that environmentalists focus on species and ecosystems, while animal advocates look to the individual, and neither seems to have much respect for the other. This eclectic anthology highlights important areas of common ground for earth and animal advocates, most notably the protection of wildlife and personal dietary choice. If earth and animal advocates move beyond philosophical differences and resultant divergent priorities, turning attention to shared goals, both will be more effective - and both animals and the environment will benefit. Given the undeniable seriousness of the environmental problems that we face, including climate change and species extinction, it is essential that activists join forces.
