One of the UK’s leading animal protection groups Animal Aid will be hosting the Wildlife Summit at this year’s VegfestUK London.
Taking place at Olympia Conference Centre on Sunday October 27th, the Wildlife Summit looks at wildlife protection from a vegan perspective. The full lineup of speakers and timetable will be announced in September.
Founded in 1977, Animal Aid campaigns peacefully against all forms of animal abuse and promote cruelty-free living. Their vision is a world in which animals are no longer harmed and exploited for human gain, but allowed to live out their lives in peace.
Isobel Hutchinson, director of Animal Aid, said, “We are so grateful to VegfestUK for this incredible opportunity to discuss a kinder approach towards the wild animals with whom we share our world. Wild animals are often widely persecuted and left with very little voice, so we are delighted that VegfestUK is providing this critical opportunity to discuss a kinder approach towards these animals. The Wildlife Summit will be a particularly valuable chance to engage with people who are newer to veganism, or perhaps still considering this compassionate lifestyle. We hope to encourage them to extend their growing sense of compassion towards wild animals too. We are extremely excited to prepare for the Summit, and look forward to letting visitors know more about the programme as it develops.”
The organisers of VegfestUK London added, “It’s a real pleasure to welcome one of our closest allies Animal Aid on board this year’s show at Olympia London and working with them on the Wildlife Summit. Animal Aid has a range of expertise on wildlife protection whilst promoting veganism, and we look forward to working with them in delivering an interesting and dynamic programme for this brand-new summit at VegfestUK.”
