Vegan group We Animals launched a vegan documentary exposing the devastating ethical and environmental impact of fur farming.
“The Farm in My Backyard,” the new vegan documentary, exposes not only the suffering of animals being exploited and killed for their fur but also the destruction in the surrounding ecosystems and environment.
“In many countries around the world, markets for fur are closing down as demand wanes,” We Animals said in a statement.
“But in the tiny Canadian province of Nova Scotia, the government is putting its own citizens’ wellbeing second to this controversial industry, doubling down on its support for the fur industry despite its devastating impacts on the environment, animals, and the local residents pleading for change.”
“We Animals is working with leading groups in Canada and around the world to end fur farming.”
Jo-Anne McArthur, Founder and Director of We Animals, added: “During our Canadian fur farm investigations, the team and I realized that it’s not just the animals who suffer on farms.”
“Surrounding ecosystems are destroyed, killing wildlife and ruining the lives of all who live nearby. We knew that this was an important story that also needed to be told.”
“The investigative team and I set out to document and expose the cruelty inherent in fur farming, but we also discovered the resulting destruction of surrounding ecosystems and communities.”
“The story was bigger than we imagined – a crisis unfolding before our eyes. This situation is an emergency for animals, the environment and communities.”
“The destruction of ecosystems and waterways near east coast fur farms is a dirty secret and a story that needs to be told.”
The Farm in My Backyard is now available at the We Animals website.
