New book by Yolaine de la Bigne: a plea against animal suffering.

New book by Yolaine de La Bigne - Sept. 2021 | Posted on 2021-09-17 11:16

This committed book tackles, for the first time, animal suffering as a whole: hunting, fishing or breeding, but also concreteisation, tourism, zoophilia, selfies, wool ... Each month, we discover an aspect of animal suffering with the numbers and those who are fighting for it to evolve. But also the solutions, the progress (“Things are moving!”), The wonderful qualities of these animals (“And yet they are formidable!”). Finally, the possible actions because each of us is a part of the solution and can, according to his degree of commitment or sensitivity, participate in the great movement of reconciliation with the animal people. Animal suffering is a question of education, politics, culture, and knowledge and also a question of generations. Today's situation is terrible, but it is also full of hope, as Yolaine de la Bigne shows us. The animal is one of the challenges of our time. Yolaine de la Bigne is a journalist and environmental activist. She founded Néoplanète, a free bimonthly magazine dedicated to the environment and sustainable development, as well as the Animal Summer University, World Animal Intelligence Day and the Animal and Human site. Author for Leduc editions of the 12 wisdoms of animals, she also hosted the chronicles "Quelle epique" (France Info) for 12 years and "Est-ce bien serious" (Sud Radio).
