One good ern deserves another

Vegan Life explores the possible implications of three new Special Protection Areas around the UK

With the world in a constant state of flux and news channels filled with threats of imposing doom flooding our screens, we can sometimes miss the good news.

Further, we can sometimes underestimate the impact of good news stories; we don’t mull over the good news and it doesn’t tend to pop back into your head with the same irritating regularity as bad news. This is partly evolution’s fault — we need to focus our thoughts on the immediate dangers and possible threats but this can mean that the negative news can be overwhelming. It’s time for a bit of positive news.

This small story, at face value, doesn’t seem earth shattering or monumental until you really start to understand the implications for the hundreds of thousands of individuals who will benefit.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our penultimate issue of 2017. November is a wonderful month and for someone who loves layers, it truly is the season to be jolly (too early to mention Christmas?). Multi-coloured leaves fall from the trees to rest on muddy, waterlogged fields and the winter wardrobe starts to emerge in all of its glory. As such, we have put together a vista of vegan-friendly clothes, shoes and accessorises perfect for the cruelty-free fashionista or as early Christmas presents (last reference, I promise). November this year is going to be particularly special for me as I’m getting married. I am relinquishing my last name, which I am sad to see go despite years of fish-related jokes, but you will have to wait for the December issue to see what it will change to! Preparing for the wedding has not been too stressful, as the ceremony is going to be very small, but whilst searching for rings I came across an issue I had not considered before. In this issue we explore the ethics of diamond mining including the damage to our increasingly fragile environments, the impact on animals whose habitats are destroyed by diamond mines and the dictatorship which profits from the activity. We have also heard some great news which we think you will be excited about. Three important places have been given Special Protection Area status which means that over 200,000 birds will be protected from human disturbance. Birds including the beloved Atlantic Puffin and Arctic Tern will now have safe feeding spaces which will be safeguarded for the future. This announcement is fantastic news for sea bird species, some of which have been in decline for several decades. Finally, this month on Bonfire Night some people will celebrate Guy Fawkes’ thwarted plan to blow up the Houses of Parliament. The loud bangs and whizzes paired with blinding flashes of light can cause anxiety and stress to companion animals and, therefore, we explore how we can help them to remain anxiety free.
