Webinar: Meat Production and the Extinction Crisis
May 21, 2020 –
Meat production is a key driver of global wildlife extinctions and the climate crisis.
Join the Center for Biological Diversity this Thursday, May 21 at 5PM -- or maybe it's 6 PM?!
This hour-long webinar will start at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET.
It's free, but you need to sign up here.
When you account for all associated activities, meat and dairy production takes up an astounding 30% of the Earth's surface and 80% of all agricultural land in the United States.
It is also a massive source of air and water pollution.
The presentation will include the Center's Hannah Connor, senior attorney and factory farm litigator; Stephanie Feldstein, population and sustainability director; and Lori Ann Burd, director of our environmental health program.
We'll talk about COVID-19 and slaughterhouses, Trump's latest policies, the dangers of meat production for wildlife and workers, personal dietary choices, and even the important rise of meatless burgers.
