Today, humans are inflicting great harm and suffering on the world's creatures and the enivornment through industries and attitudes that exploit animals and destroy wildlife. The response to this injustice is the development of a movement -the Animal Rights Movement: the vehicle for millions who seek justice and compassion for animals.
