Whale Watching, Cape Cod
Oct07

Whale Watching, Cape Cod

During my travels, I’m always looking for ways to interact with animals — whether it’s by visiting a local animal sanctuary, hiking through the woods, or walking along the beach. When in Cape Cod, one is almost certain to feel the pull of the whale watching opportunities. I was just a young girl the first time I experienced the thrill of the whale watch, with my family during a a stay on the Cape. A little later in life, I would be privileged to receive a grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities to spend the better part of a summer researching and discussing with a select group the different aspects of Herman Melville’s work — Moby Dick, of course, a focal point of our work. The magnificent white whale. Mythic. Epic. And, just as in literature, sighting a whale is among the  most mesmerizing and humbling experiences in life. Responsible Whale Watching: WhaleSense.org We know too much about the horrors of Sea World or other similar entertainment parks to partake in those kinds of interactions. However, it’s also important to do a little homework before signing up for a whale watch. As always, the idea is that we want to observe wildlife without being disruptive; and whale-watching is largely a self-regulated industry with few laws looking out for the welfare of the mammals. I was happy, then, to discover Whale SENSE, an organization whose mission is to ensure the safety and well-being of the whales and other sea animals while allowing us to enjoy these commercial whale watches. Participating companies agree to: Stick to responsible whale watching guidelines Educate naturalists, captains and passengers to have SENSE while watching whales Notify appropriate networks of whale problems (injured or entangled whales) Set and example for other boaters for responsible whale watching practices Encourage ocean stewardship Check out the Whale SENSE web site to look up the company and see if it is a participant. The site lists whale watching companies in Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York. You’ll also find some great information about the different species of whale and dolphin there.  ...

Genesis Awards, 2013

Genesis Awards, 2013

This past weekend, I was in Los Angeles to attend The 27th Genesis Awards held at The Beverly Hilton. Each year, The Humane Society of the United States hosts a star-studded event that recognizes the contributions by major news and entertainment media in raising public awareness about animal issues. Proceeds from this year’s gala benefited three of HSUS’s campaigns: Pets for Life, Farm Animal Protection, and Chimps Deserve Better. Saturday night’s program was hosted by Carrie Ann Inaba of “Dancing with the Stars.” I was at the awards last year when she hosted for the first time; once again, she did a fantastic job. The evening began with cocktails before sitting down to a 3-course vegan meal, followed by the awards show. Celebrity presenters included Wendie Malick, Pauley Perrette, Charlotte Ross, Kaley Cuoco, Owain Yeoman, Hal Sparks, and Michael Vartan. All of the nominees deserve a standing ovation for their work on behalf of animals. Here’s a list of some of the night’s winners: Feature Film Big Miracle TV Documentary Ivory Wars – Discovery Channel Dramatic Series Harry’s Law – “Gorilla My Dreams” episode – NBC Reality Series Wild Justice – Nat Geo Channel National News ABC World News, Diane Sawyer – downer cow video Print Magazine National Geographic – “Rhino Wars” by Peter Gwinz; “Cheetahs on the Edge” by Roff Smith; “Ivory Worship” by Bryan Christy Columnist Roy Exum, The Chattanoogan.com – multiple part series on Tennessee Walking Horse soaring The Wyler Award & The Corporate Award Pop star Ke$ha received this year’s Wyler Award, given each year to a celebrity or public figure who has raised awareness of animal issues via the media. As the Humane Society International’s first Global Ambassador for Animals, Ke$ha has spread the word about street dogs, trophy hunting of endangered lions, shark-finning, Canada’s commercial seal slaughter, dogfighting, and cruelty-free cosmetics. She also features a different animal issue each month on her web site and urges her fan base to take action for animals. This year introduced a new award, The HSUS Corporate Award, which was given to Lush Cosmetics, for creating handmade products with all-vegetarian ingredients and adhering to a “no animal testing” policy. With its ingredients and packaging, LUSH creates products that also have a minimal impact on the environment and comply with high labor standards. Furthermore, the company exemplifies corporate responsibility in its activism, as it engages both consumers and legislators in advancing animal protection, environmental, and human rights causes. Silent Auction & After-Party In addition to dinner and the show, there’s also a silent auction and a high-energy after-party. The auction is a smorgasbord of cruelty-free products, beautiful artwork,...

My Husband’s Film for Farm Sanctuary

My Husband’s Film for Farm Sanctuary

Happy New Year! Perhaps you’ve already seen Farm Sanctuary’s new short film “What Came Before” starring actor/comedian Steve O. It just so happens that this film was produced and edited by my husband Seth. We’re so excited that people are watching and responding so positively. The stories of Nikki the pig, Symphony the chicken, and Fanny the cow are happy endings that can give us all hope as we move into 2013 and look towards another year of victories on behalf of animals everywhere. If you haven’t seen this film yet, I urge you to watch and share (note: some footage from undercover investigations that is difficult to watch). You also can catch Steve O on the Jane Velez-Mitchell show this Friday, January 4th, talking about the film. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNxcylWLEH8&w=600]   Thank you to Farm Sanctuary, and to all the individuals and other organizations that contributed to the film and are helping animals every...

Sharing YOUR Favorites

It’s summer vacation! I’ll be traveling quite a bit during these next few months, and I also want to make the most of the time I have left with my family here in Tucson before moving back to New York, so this post will be the last for a while. Nevertheless, our CFF community can still enjoy finding out about cool cruelty-free stuff… Sharing on Facebook Although I’m taking a break from blogging, I’ll be posting all sorts of goodies on the Cruelty-Free Faves Facebook page (and re-posting some old faves, too!). If you haven’t checked it out yet, I hope you will visit the page, “like” it, and use it as a way of discovering and sharing favorites of your own. I love hearing about your faves… and reading everyone’s comments that follow. It’s so quick and easy to share a photo of something you’ve cooked up in the kitchen, or a  link to a favorite product. With our blossoming FB community (4600+ and growing!), possibilities are endless for learning together about new cruelty-free alternatives. Cruelty-Free Faves Archives With 260+ posts accumulated over the last few years, the Cruelty-Free Faves site can be a resource for anyone looking for alternatives as the need arises, either by browsing the categories or using the search feature. Please remember to share the blog with friends, especially those just starting to make cruelty-free a priority in their day-to-day. Keeping it easy and fun is the surest way to keep it going. Have a wonderful summer, everyone! And let’s continue making those little choices each day that add up to a BIG difference for animals, people, and our planet. Peace, Sharon  ...

Summer Reading

Summer Reading

For me, poolside reading in the summertime is one of the ultimate pleasures in life. Whether in the serenity of one’s backyard, in the midst of mingling families at the local pool, or lying in the sand with the sound of ocean waves and sea gulls in the background — just give me a good read in the sunshine, and I am blissful. So if you’re like me, and you’re looking for some great books for the upcoming months, here are a few recent reads that I recommend adding to your summer reading list. Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer Some of you may be familiar with Foer’s other works, such as Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. In this book,  as Foer faces becoming a parent, he is considering his own eating habits and how they reflect his values. It’s a thoughtful piece, rather than a preachy one. A good one to share with omnivore friends to shed light on the realities of industrialized farming and the lives animals in agriculture endure just to end up on dinner plates. The Bond by Wayne Pacelle I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Pacelle, CEO of The Humane Society of the United States, speak on numerous occasions. While he always  is quick to point out that there is still so much more work to be done on behalf of animals everywhere, he also always leaves you feeling fired up by his stories of the victories on behalf of animals that demonstrate just how generous humanity can be. This book examines the bond we have with all kinds of animals — companion animals, farmed animals, and wildlife — and how these complex, sometimes contradictory, relationships have evolved over time. One of my favorite passages in the book discusses how our relationship with whales has changed over the years from one of dependence on the whaling industry for fueling our lamps to an avid whale-watching community that has come to appreciate the magnificence of these amazing creatures in a whole new light. Pacelle concludes the book with fifty ways any person can help animals through personal behavior, work in the community, and in a broader context that includes legislative efforts. This poolside read will educate any reader as well as inspire. (And, if you love this book as much I did, also check out Farm Sanctuary by Gene Baur.) Letters To Pushkin by … ME! If you’ve ever wondered where my personal inspiration to work on behalf of animals came from, this is a big part of it. A little beagle named Pushkin opened my heart and changed my life forever when I brought him home to my...
