Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism
Prof. Steve Garlick Live Guest Chat
ARZone is pleased to present this week’s Live Chat Guest.
Professor Steve Garlick is the Founding President of The Animal Justice Party in Australia.
The Animal Justice Party has been formed as a response to growing public concern about the neglect of animals and animal protection issues by political parties.
The Animal Justice Party seeks a restoration of the balance between the human, natural and animal worlds which acknowledges the interconnectedness and inter-dependence of these worlds, and respects the wellbeing of other animals alongside that of humans, societies, economies and environments.
Steve has professorial positions at two Australian universities and is an international expert in spatial economics and university/community engagement.
He is an economist and applied ethicist, specialising in wildlife welfare and sits on a number of international and national boards. He also has an extensive publication record.
In 2009, with wife Rosemary, Steve was internationally recognised with the World Shining Compassion Award for the work he does rehabilitating severely injured wildlife. With Rosemary, Steve runs a wildlife recovery and research centre for macropods and wombats.
Steve welcomes the opportunity to engage ARZone members this weekend on a range of topics, including his work with The Animal Justice Party , his work in wildlife rehabilitation and his philosophies in general.
ARZone is supportive of education, critical thinking, rational discourse, and aims to provoke intelligent dialogue about issues that most concern members of the animal advocacy movement.
