Ira Pastor, ideaXme life sciences ambassador and CEO of Bioquark, interviews Philip Lymbery, award winning author of books Farmageddon and Dead Zone and CEO of Compassion in World Farming.

Ira Pastor Comments:

Compassion in World Farming (CIWF)is a campaigning and lobbying animal welfare organization which campaigns against the live export of animals, certain methods of livestock slaughter, and all systems of factory farming.

Philip Lymbery, founder of Compassion in World Farming:

Philip Lymbery is the CEO of CIWF, as well as visiting professor at the University of Winchester, ornithologist, photographer, naturalist, self-confessed animal advocate, and award winning author of both Farmageddon: The True Cost of Cheap Meat (listed as one of The Times Writers Books of the Year) as well as Dead Zone: Where the Wild Things Were.

Protecting Animals is about Protecting People and the Planet:

Philip has played leading roles in many major animal welfare reforms, including the Europe-wide bans on veal crates for calves and barren battery cages for laying hens.

Described as one of the food industry’s most influential people, he has spearheaded CIWF’s engagement work with over 800 food companies worldwide, leading to real improvements in the lives of more than a billion farm animals every year.

World’s First Extinction and Livestock Conference of 2017:

It was also Philip’s vision to set up the world’s first extinction and livestock conference in London in October 2017, bringing together Compassion in World Farming and the World Wildlife Fund, supported by HRH Prince of Wales Charitable Foundation.

Philip’s awards include Recipient of the ‘Outstanding Campaign’ award by Brussels based Eurogroup for Animals and the 2015 ‘International Golden Dove’ peace prize in Rome.

On this ideaXme episode we hear from Philip Lymbery about:

His background and how he developed a passion for animal welfare and advocacy. The background of Compassion In World Farming and an overview of what constitutes factory farming. Factory farming connections to pandemics, zoonotic diseases, and antibiotic resistance / superbugs. Industrial agriculture and its connection to biodiversity destruction in locations like the Amazon rainforest. Technological solutions such as lab / stem cell grown meats and alternative / plant-based protein sources. Solutions on how to feed the growing population and how we can all make a difference by the food choices we make.
