Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

While it is Winter in South Africa, it is peak holiday season in England.

Animal fur items are not foremost on people’s minds in London.

Yet bear skin hats are in full view outside Buckingham palace  – a huge tourist attraction. Below is a petition addressed to the UK Ministry of Defence:

It requests that high quality synthetic materials replace bearskin hats made from slaughtered black bears. The entire skin of a Canadian Black Bear is used for each hat.BearBear1

Bears are not farmed but are baited and killed by Canadian hunters, who then supply the auction houses with bear pelts, which supply the British army.

In the 21st century there are other options.queen inspects her guards

    Well overdue for a change, and to set an example to the rest of the world. End fur products and leave it where it belongs – on the creature that was born with it.
