Building an Ark
101 Solutions to Animal Suffering
by Ethan Smith
with Guy Dauncey
foreword by Jane Goodall, PhD. & DBE
Building an Ark: 101 Solutions to Animal Suffering is a first-of-its-kind, inspiring look at practical solutions to the impact humans have on animals and the natural world.
Factory farms, habitat destruction, animal product testing, the abuse and neglect of companion animals, the illegal trade in endangered species, unsustainable fishing and climate change all create unnecessary suffering for animals.
For several decades there has been a global movement building; an ever-increasing consciousness that will soon affect animal welfare and the future of life on Earth – if it's given time to do so. Building an Ark is the story of this movement. Extensively researched and drawing on practical examples from around the world, it provides a voice for both the animals and the humans who have dedicated their lives to building a sustainable future for all species.
The Ark is ready for all to board. Individuals, action groups, schools, businesses, governments, farmers, fishers, developing nations Â— there's a role for everyone on this journey. Building an Ark offers a host of solutions that Â— if adopted Â— will ensure that animals will suffer less today, and that humans and animals will share a more sustainable planet tomorrow.
