Details are scant, but according to sources, actress and animal rights activist Elissa Sursara may show up on the small screen next year in a reality docu-series called “Diary of an ARA (Animal Rights Activist).

Facebook and Twitter postings say that the series is in pre-production, with cameras following the activist as she “battles the cruelties faced by animals used for clothing, entertainment, food, and experimentation.”

According to Indy Bay, the first episode is rumored to feature a SeaWorld protest, as well as provide information about her rumored arrest in January, 2011, for stealing neglected animals from a Queensland, Australia property.

Oddly, the displayed official site DiaryofanARA.com is neither available nor registered. To prevent anyone with ulterior motives from squatting, we went ahead and purchased the domain. Elissa, hit us up with an email and we’ll hook you up!

No word yet on what network Diaray of an ARA might air on.

    Animal Welfare or Animal Rights?

    Here are some of the differences:

    As animal welfare advocates. . .

    · We seek to improve the treatment and well-being of animals.

    · We support the humane treatment of animals that ensures comfort and freedom from unnecessary pain and suffering.

    · We believe we have the right to “own” animals — they are our property.

    · We believe animal owners should provide loving care for the lifetime of their animals.

    As animal rights activists. . .

    · They seek to end the use and ownership of animals, including the keeping of pets.

    · They believe that any use of an animal is exploitation so, not only must we stop using animals for food and clothing, but pet ownership must be outlawed as well.

    · They want to obtain legal rights for animals as they believe that animals and humans are equal.

    · They use false and unsubstantiated allegations of animal abuse to raise funds, attract media attention and bring supporters into the movement.

    This is great news for me because i’m an animal rights activist due to the fact that every animal species has it’s own language and every single animal is a sentient being! And nothing in the world can change this!
