Earlier this year, Ecorazzi reported that Queen guitarist Brian May was speaking up for animals by publicly supporting The World Society for the Protection of Animals’ (WSPA) Animals Matter To Me campaign — an initiative to get at least 10 million signatures in support of a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare. But his advocacy doesn’t stop there! May also launched the Save Me Campaign to prevent the return of legalized blood sports to the British countryside.
This week, the legendary guitarist was honored by the House of Lords for his animal advocacy work and presented an award by the International Fund For Animal Welfare (IFAW).
“Fighting for the welfare of our wild animals is not a task that any of us want to have to do,” he said. “We do it because these magnificent animals live, breathe, see, hear, and feel pleasure and pain like we do, but they do not speak our language, so in the world of humans, they have no voice.
“They have no way to speak out against the abuse being perpetrated against them.”
We give May three cheers for all his animal saving efforts! Keep up the great work!
