Animal Voices

Sunday, 26 December 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Tilt at the beach

It is common for animal advocacy campaigns to describe animals as voiceless, and portray humans as speaking on their behalf. This is incorrect, animals DO have voices! Davita and Trev discuss the theory behind animal voices, with contributions from Nicole Beasley and Belinda Morris. We explore the links to other social justice issues, and why we should listen to and amplify animal voices with our advocacy. You'll get to hear the voices of many animals, including the rooster pictured in the podcast photo Tilt!
