AJP is extremely concerned about the impact of climate change on animals, including humans. Some animals will succumb to extreme climatic events well before we do.
It is an AJP priority that urgent action be taken to address global climate destabilisation. Animal agriculture plays a major role as a cause of climate change, so a switch to a plant-based diet would be of significant help. Globally, it is essential that we protect ocean life, marine eco-systems and decrease land-based livestock numbers to reduce methane and other greenhouse gas emissions and allow reforestation.
