In this episode of The Rising Lioness Podcast on All About Animals Radio, Host Erica Salvemini speaks candidly with Chris Cavaliere, Research Director at The Beyond Cruelty Foundation about their weighty manifesto introduction piece titled, Beyond Animal Exploitation.


Authored by Chris Cavaliere, this important document delivers a bold and staggering statement about the exploitation of non-human sentient beings on our planet. It urgently asks for a course correction to curb these human-caused disastrous effects and cruelties to avoid the mass extinction of life; for non-human animals as well as for humankind. This document collates a significant collection of evidence to portray a fact-based account of humankind's systemic animal exploitation which has caused a profoundly detrimental effect on the future sustainability of life.


WARNING: Linked content found within Beyond Animal Exploitation document may be upsetting to some audiences.



The urgency of this document’s content is a startling must-read, but at a slow pace, for its nearly 300 references provide the reader accessibility to articles of visual accounts, empirical science, and data sources, illustrating how human and nonhuman existence is inextricably connected. The moral of this important factually backed story proposes that our ability to find *life beyond cruelty *is a critical determining factor, a missing goal, vital to our continued existence on this planet.

The Beyond Cruelty Foundation’s manifesto strives to have SDG18 - Zero Animal Exploitation become global policy through the UN’s *SDGs - Sustainable Development Goals.


The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),  Sustainable Development Goals: 17 Goals to Transform our World? | United also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
