A Public Vegan Policy


Dear Friends and Family,

At Climate Healers, we started the Vegan World 2026 campaign over a year ago in response to numerous scientific reports that wild animals are dying at an exponentially accelerating pace. At current rates of decline, the world is on track to reach Year ZERO, the year when 100% of wild vertebrates die off, by 2026, just 8 short years from now. This is an existential crisis.

In response, as part of the “Save the Animals, Save the Earth,” campaign, Brother Wolf Animal Rescue (BWAR) has been asking all animal rescue groups to adopt a public vegan policy for their organization, and to encourage other animal rescue groups to do the same. But why should Animal Rescue groups be the only ones to adopt such a public Vegan policy? Don’t religious groups, environmental organizations, health care organizations and even ordinary citizens like you and me also care about this existential crisis?

Therefore, we are pleading with every one to adopt a public Vegan policy. A public Vegan policy doesn’t mean everyone has to go vegan overnight. Rather, it means that we will only serve Vegan items at all our public get-togethers and functions. This is a powerful, symbolic act to raise our consciousness about the impacts of animal food consumption on animal cruelty, mass species extinction and climate change.

Your consumption of animal foods not only kills you directly through chronic diseases, but it also kills you, me and all life on Earth indirectly through the environment. Second-hand eating is second-hand smoking writ large and this gives every one of us the moral authority to ask others to cease and desist.

With Love,

Sailesh Rao
