Why: Friends of Animals will be the only animal advocacy organization taking part in the march and we’re glad to have the opportunity to connect the dots between the planet’s climate and the drastic effects it has on animals around the world.

At Friends of Animals, we are concerned about much of our population’s reckless and irresponsible attitude about what it means to be human on a planet with finite resources. They represent an insistence on occupying and conquering every square inch of this planet, with complete disregard for the billions of nonhuman animals we share this planet with; that’s not to mention diminishing resources like access to clean water,which is already a burden for millions across the globe. As humans expand and continue to devour land and other natural resources, we must remember that our ecosystem is complex and dynamic.

 

Animals—both human and nonhuman— depend on one another. That’s why it is critical humans start considering the animals with which we share the planet and start changing our course of action if we are to ensure there is room for all of us. You can learn more about overpopulation and the negative impact it's having on the planet by checking out our Winter issue of Action Line magazine available on our website. The People's Climate effort is recreating the coalition that put together the largest climate march in history: when 400,000 people gathered in the streets of New York City in September 2014 to coincide with the United Nations' general assembly.
