For every abuser, torturer and exploiter, there are MORE who recognize that the most valuable of life lessons are gifted to us through our connectedness to the Animal Spirits. This site will strive to capture our shared spirit and the potential of mutual relationship through information, education, poetry, writing and images. This blog has been created to focus more predominantly on the heroes of this world, rather than the villains. However, one certainly cannot be illuminated without the other.
“One does not have to operate with great malice to do great harm. The absence of empathy and understanding are sufficeint.” ~ Charles M. Blow
“The Animal Spirits” is a collective voice, created to encourage, inspire and influence compassionate action and choice by/of/from the human species, calling them to lend voice to innocent, sentient, living beings who cannot speak for themselves.
WE are The Animal Spirits, both human and non human, WE are the oppressed, the enslaved, the exploited and the vulnerable. WE are the endangered, the elderly, the disabled and the ailing. WE think, WE dream. WE love. WE hunger. WE feel. WE suffer. In these capacities, WE suffer as equals. WE are calling to compassionate humans to rescue, protect and lend voice on OUR behalf.
Blessings on those who from places of empathy and compassion take action to protect, defend and lend voice to innocent, sentient, living beings, of ALL species in need.
Both human and non-human, . . . WE are The Animal Spirits.
In regard to campaigns, we are cooperative. However, WE focus our support on the campaign to educate people that if human and nonhuman animals matter morally, we cannot justify eating, wearing, or using them. Period.

DEDICATION: The inspiration to begin this blog site came to me along with renewed hope after following (on Facebook) the life of Moses, a baby elephant who was orphaned because of elephant poaching. Moses was taken in by The Jumbo Foundation. I followed the story from the beginning and fell in love with this little ele, as well as the people who run The Jumbo Foundation. One morning, I logged into Facebook and learned that Moses had ceased to resist the changing of form and passed on to the ‘nother places. I fell into deep grief. After several days of moping, it occured to me that I am afforded the opportunity to honor Moses’ short life through promoting the protection of elephants and all of the other Animal Spirits. Thus, this blog is born, November 2012 and is dedicated to Moses, The Elephant Ambassador and to The Jumbo Foundation.
We can make a difference.
