PETA is one of the organizations that care for the life and habitats of animals all over the world. This animal rights group was founded in March 1980 by Ingrid Newkirk together with Alex Pacheco.
This organization got the biggest attention after a year, during the Silver Spring monkey’s case. This case was published all over the world. It’s all about the experiments conducted on 17 macaque monkeys in the institute of Behavioral Research in Silver Spring, Maryland. Police raided this animal laboratory because of the violation of the Animal Welfare act. Since then, PETA become internationally known as a supporter for animals’ rights.
As of these days, PETA is primarily focusing on four issues: animals used for entertainment, for factory farming, testing, and fur and product manufacturing. They campaign and believe that all kinds of animals must not be killed, eaten, fished, chained, and beaten or abused. They are against dog fights, bullfights, aquarium shows, and circus.
In terms of diet, they suggest eating fruits and vegetables. Yes, people working and supporting this organization are basically vegetarians and vegans. And if you are a vegetarian or a vegan, you must unquestionably agree and support their advocacy. An undeniable fact about vegetables and fruits is that they supply our body with the right nutrition and energy. Considered as organic, these foods are rich in various vitamins, minerals, and other antioxidants. Eating vegetables and fruits are healthier than meat of any kind.
PETA is an animal friendly organization. They provide animals a security that some humans cannot do. They are the voice of each and every kind of animal. Whether they are living in land, sea, or air, animals must be treated with respect and love. You must treat animals as humans, as they are your own, or as how you like to be treated by others.
Let us all spread awareness about protection of Animal Rights. Let us do our bit. It is our Moral Duty.
