Cavi•Art Tasting

Friends of Animals tests it out with Chef Trish Sebben-Krupka

by Lee Hall

Vegan caviar. Really!

We heard this Danish product was a hit when it debuted at the New York City Vegetarian Food Festival. At just about $10 a jar it's a lot gentler than regular caviar on the wallet as well as on sea life.

But would such a product hold up to the expectations of a chef who knows the taste of sturgeon caviar?

Bushmeat from Endangered Animals Feeds Hungry: Study

Perhaps not surprisingly, not everyone is on board with that idea, either.

Reclaiming Western Lands From Cattle Barons

By Priscilla Feral, President | Summer Act'ionLine 2010

What if you had the chance to reclaim 300 million acres of Western lands in the U.S. for all people, plants and animals?

We have that chance. The government -- our government -- could protect wide-open spaces, habitat for free-living horses, wolves, grizzly bears, elk, pronghorn antelopes, eagles, prairie dogs, coyotes and other animals.

So far, that hasn't exactly been a trend. When they don't seem useful to us, animals are resented. Stalked. Rounded up. Killed or otherwise displaced.
