International Moon Bear Day
The Founder's undercover investigation into bear bile farming in Vietnam underpinned the rescue of 3 Moon Bears in Vietnam. Lili, Luc and Lulu now reside at Four Paws Ninh Binh sanctuary, living a life of fresh air, contact with their own kind and food and water on tap. A dream come true.
Despite opposition from every angle, Verify Humanity have continued to champion the remaining 9 bears on the two farms. Written off by everyone, we continue to support these underdogs when no-one else will.
We are set to have a pivotal article published in the Ark which will raise awareness of the political sensitivities that have allowed these 'Untouchable Bears' to remain captive and beyond the reach of law.
So let's celebrate these wonderful animals on International Moon Bear Day in an attempt to shine a light on bears like Boo who continue to remain captive.
There aren't many causes where conservationists, animal rights, animal welfare and vegans join arms but this is one of them.
Octopus Article in Oceanographic
Is This The Future We Want or Need?
by Kate Fox - Founder
"If the Netflix Documentary My Octopus Teacher taught us one thing it is that octopus are incredibly complex, intelligent and sentient beings. Despite this, Gran Canaria is planning to open the world's first commercial octopus farm."
The octopus is balanced on a precipice of commercial scale cruelty from which they are unlikely to return unless animal lovers the world over step up and be counted.
The Founder's recent article in the prestigious Oceanographic Magazine, sets out an ethical argument for farming such intelligent, sensitive and naturally solitary animals as well as a conservation one.
Fox highlights that "farming carnivores to supply human food is logically bereft as it’s inefficient and threatens biodiversity, food security and food equality."

Verify Humanity Collaborates to Achieve Sustainable Palm Oil
When ingredients such as palm oil are hidden in 50% of our supermarket products, it is difficult for consumers to know what contains sustainable, deforestation-free palm oil and easy for producers to shirk responsibility.
96 conservation organisations, including Verify Humanity, are working towards making it easier for customers to choose and more difficult for producers to hide.

Verify Humanity Joins Wiltshire Climate Alliance
Verify Humanity has joined forces with Wiltshire Climate Alliance, an umbrella organisation that brings together different groups with shared values. Campaigning to raise awareness and action on climate change and the environment.
You might be wondering what animal advocacy has to do with climate change? While there is a growing understanding of the unacceptable cruelty associated with factory farming, less well-known is that livestock supply chains are responsible for a massive 14.5% of greenhouse gas emissions.
With our campaigns specialising in the illegal wildlife trade, illegal wildlife farming and factory farming, we hope to bring a relevant but fresh angle to the Wiltshire Climate Alliance network.
Verify Humanity Reveals Logo
Somewhere between creating campaigns, designing websites and organising volunteers we finally have a logo that will represent our non-profit organisation. And we could not be more excited!
As a new organisation, we rely on the kindness of others for everything. Rebecca Benson is an incredibly talented animal artist, stepped up to the mark. Endlessly patient with requests for longer ears, bigger eyes and a unique hand designed font.
Thank you Bex for this outstanding logo. Below is a link to her website if you want to see just how skilled she is!
Will Screening at International Film Festival Free Boo the Bear?
As organisation kick-offs go, I'm not sure Verify Humanity could have asked for a better one! Lawless Lands has been chosen to be screened at the International Vegan Film Festival (IVFF) 2020.
We are insanely excited, somewhat humbled and ever so slightly hopeful for Boo the Bear and his friends who are still waiting to be rescued.
Feel free to have a look at Lawless Land's trailer on the IVFF website.
Free Boo The Bear - Sign His Petition
Project Co-existence is underway! This light hearted 3 month photographic project seeks to shift deeply engrained values that allow us to love some animals as family members while ruthlessly exploiting others.
Project Co-Existence will photograph people who have strong bonds with unusual animals to prove that it's not just cats and dogs that are lovable!
A big thank you to Millie and her ferrets Floki and Titch.
