Blame the giant pandas.
I’ve always been an animal lover; I’ve been vegetarian for 20 years and a more-ethical-by-the-day vegan since 2002, but getting actively involved with animal rights and wildlife conservation started with a wee baby panda named Tai Shan.
Things sort of snowballed from there and now I write my own AR and wildlife conservation blog, which led to learning about all sorts of other people who devote their lives to wildlife conservation, environmental conservation, and animal rights activism. I found the gorilla rangers in late 2006 and I’ve been hooked ever since.
