Missing Animals
Why are environmentalists accepting abuse?

Free Public Talk by Philip McKibbin.
Followed by a group discussion.

All welcome (no registration required).

About the talk: New Zealanders are becoming increasingly concerned about the environment, and we are finally starting to act on issues like plastic pollution, biodiversity loss, and the climate crisis. Unfortunately, environmentalists still accept animal abuse. We keep making excuses for animal agriculture, which is not only harmful to the environment (it pollutes our land and waterways, and it is the leading contributor to greenhouse gas emissions here in Aotearoa), but is also exploitative and cruel (forced pregnancies, separation of calves and mothers, and slaughter are routine practices). Similarly, the Department of Conservation’s ‘Predator Free 2050’ programme blames so-called ‘pests’ for environmental destruction, then it targets them with traps and 1080 poison, which inflict intense suffering - even though their environmental impact is smaller than ours, and we wouldn’t treat humans that way. How can we ensure Aotearoa New Zealand is a loving place for all its inhabitants, human and non-human?

About the speaker: Philip McKibbin is a writer from Aotearoa New Zealand, of Pākehā and Māori (Ngāi Tahu) descent. His book Love Notes: for a Politics of Love is published by Lantern. He co-organised ‘The Politics of Love: A Conference’ at All Souls College, Oxford.
