Why You Should Read Animalkind

In the last few decades, a wealth of new information has emerged about animals—they’re smart, highly aware, and empathetic. Studies show that they’re astounding beings with intelligence, emotions, and astonishing abilities. Animalkind is a fascinating study showing why our fellow sentient beings deserve our respect, and it contains a collection of steps that every reader can take to translate their new appreciation for animals into action.

The book details a variety of fascinating examples, including that geese fall in love and stay with a partner for life, even at great personal risk; that squirrels bury nuts by the position of the stars; and that elephants use their trunks to send subsonic signals, alerting herds a mile or more away to danger or a source of water.

Authors Ingrid Newkirk and Gene Stone also inform readers of the many ways humans can help end the abuse and exploitation of animals. Learn what you can do in your everyday life to make a difference. Whether it’s in the realm of medicine, product testing, food, clothing, or entertainment—there are now far better, quicker, cheaper, and more humane alternatives to all the ways animals were once exploited by human society. We no longer send canaries down coal mines, deliver the mail by Pony Express, or kill rabbits in pregnancy tests—and you can help PETA phase out all other forms of animal exploitation, too.
