    What comes to mind when you read the word “animal”? Where are you in relation to that? Most human cultures have a view that makes us separate from animals, that says we are better than animals.

I believe that this is damaging to these animals and to ourselves. Not just in one-on-one relations, but on our ecosystem on a global scale.
