As a Consumer

Over the past century, California has warmed by about 3 degrees Fahrenheit, drying out the plants and soil, priming it to burn in the longer, and later summers.


This is a result of climate change.


The size of the fires that sweep across California have trended upward, threatening the habitats and habits of the burrowing owls.


Greenhouse gases from human activities are the most significant driver of observed climate change since the mid-20th century.


Animal agriculture is responsible for 18% of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation.


Meat consumption is rising annually as human populations grow and affluence increases.


Reducing meat consumption is possibly the largest and most immediate change that any individual can make to save the owls.

As well as: using less energy, buying less stuff, traveling less, and having fewer children. [source]

It'll also be easier to migrate with the changing weather patterns.

Consume and carry less so we can live and thrive more! ❀️

Vegan food also preserves better and tends to be more sanitary, except if it's leafy and grown near pig and cattle feedlots (where they poop a lot and e coli is in their poop and that poop becomes the manure for your green leafy vegetables that just soak that poop right up, no filter). πŸ’©

If you volunteer to plant at Burrowing Owl Billows, you'll be offered plant-based food to fuel your fire (if we're doing a 4+ hour volunteer session). πŸ”₯

Below are some photos I took of what I make and eat as a vegan! πŸ˜‹
