We’re joined by Naty Guerrero-Diaz, Penny Cameron and Melanie Ellis from Big Sky Sanctuary. Naty discusses the intersectional, feminist, abolitionist philosophy of Big Sky Sanctuary, as well as critiques of the vegan movement – including rejecting the idea of bringing veganism into the mainstream, as well as arguing that veganism is just one stop in a long journey for social justice. Penny and Mel discuss the animals at Big Sky Sanctuary, their campaign for a new barn for their sanctuary (which you can donate to – details here) and their heroes, Vine Sanctuary in the US.
You can view our photos from our visits to the sanctuary here and here. It takes a lot of money to take care of all of the animals at Big Sky, so we really encourage people to give a donation if they can – you can find their bank details here. We also encourage people who live in/visit Melbourne to check out Las Vegan!
