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.

The USA, Canada and Russia are the top three wild fur pelt producers, where brutal leg hold traps are used.

These traps have been banned in many countries. However, Amazon online retail was selling traps and snares, which meant anyone across the world could buy and use them.  

Due to sustained campaigning,  Amazon has agreed on compassionate grounds to remove the sale of snares and traps from its website.  Petitions do work!
