But I'm a little concerned about the fact we are using the term "animal rights" here and there which does imply action or philosophy of different kinds. I am, I'm afraid, a meat eater and although I do my best to only eat well looked after animals, there is at heart a slight hypocrosy in that the animals are killed. I don't want to offend anyone who is a vegetarian but I don't actually intend to change my ways with that. I'm probably overthinking this and being oversensitive because of my own guilt trips but I guess I just want clarification.
Thank you for telling!!
When we are talking about action it's something we can do actively to collect money for our project. Like setting up a play (that is just an example). It has nothing to do with taking action against or for anything animalistic.
I'm also a meateater.
Thanks for clearing that up because I'm also a meateater and have been a bit unsure in the direction this was going. I am 100% behind the idea but think that it needs a bit of refining because there is so many ideas being bounced around.
Okay, to clarify. We are looking into conservation to save endangered species and to stop the use of ivory and skins as a purely decorative use. That is the organisations we want to support.
I also eat meat, though I am extra fussy about what I eat mainly due to dislike.
I hope this reassures you.
I know what we're looking into as I'm not a simpleton and can read quite well.It is HOW we are going to support these causes that needs clarifying. So far reading through these threads I have seen alot of great ideas all of which could be put into practice. What I wish to be clarifed is what EXACTLY will we be doing so I can then work out what I can do, what relevant skills I have. I only wish to support this cause but feel the need to air my opinion on the lack of clarity.
This is as far as we've come so far.
