Pamela Anderson and PETA President Ingrid E. NewkirkNothing says “we thought you were swell,” like a 37-acre nature preserve! 

The folks of Westport, CT will honor Paul Newman’s life by creating such a preserve on the lot adjacent to his former home. Joanne Woodward, Newman’s widow, posed the idea in a letter to the local council. She said: 

“The Poses land is a truly beautiful piece of land that Paul, our children, and I have had the privilege of enjoying for many, many years. Preserving the Poses property in its natural state is something I very much believe Paul would have loved to see happen. Paul always expressed regret that he was not able to accomplish this himself, so I think if there were to be anything at all done by the town to honor Paul’s memory this would be a very generous and appropriate tribute to him. He would, I believe, be particularly pleased that such a gesture would benefit all of Westport’s residents.”

The new Newman/Poses Preserve will include walking paths, benches, and a ban on development and building. There would also be a limitation of 0.25 parking spaces per acre. 

Sounds like something the late actor would have totally loved! Good work, Connecticut!

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

Why we SHOULDN’T genetically ‘disenhance’ animals

Creating bandaid “solutions” to ethical problems we’ve created doesn’t address the issue at hand

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
