From Exploring Vegetarianism to the Causes of Species Depletion

By: Alyson Wyers - Dec 19, 2014
These animal welfare presentations all hold the view that the lives of non-human living creatures should be respected and even valued. Whether it is from a compassionate point of view or a climate change-combating strategy, vegetarianism is a solution. Extinction and the environment as a whole is also discussed at length.

One of the animal welfare presentations is given by comedian Ricky Gervais, who expresses his outrage at animal abuses in his talk. Jane Goodall Institution Australia CEO Natalie Houghton discusses animal protection in the realm of social awareness as well as conservation in her compassionate youth lecture. Meanwhile Michio Kaku's extinct species speech looks at it from a scientific perspective and bringing back animal varieties.

This focus on the rights of animals demonstrates the compassionate nature of human beings and their desire to help those who are unable to help themselves.
