A total rethink

“Every day there is a new confirmation of how destructive, inefficient, wasteful, cruel and unhealthy the industrial agricultural machine is. We need a total rethink of our food and farming systems before it’s too late.”

For 25 years Philip has worked extensively on animal welfare issues, wildlife and the environment. He is a recognised thought leader, his lectures taking him across the globe to meet and exchange ideas with like minded specialists, experts and individuals.

 

He regularly commentates in the media and on speaker platforms about the global effects of industrial farming and has been listed by The Grocer as one of the food industry’s most influential people.

A Global Biodiversity Crisis

“Factory farming to provide ‘cheap’ meat is not only the biggest cause of animal cruelty on the planet, it is also a major driver of wildlife declines. It causes deforestation, soil erosion, marine pollution dead zones and drives species as diverse as jaguars, elephants and penguins to the brink of extinction.”

LATEST NEWS

Philip’s latest book is Dead Zone – Where the Wild Things Were. Published by Bloomsbury in March 2017, the Paperback is Out Now

‘A Must Read’ – Daily Mail

 

A new, compelling film (to coincide with the new paperback) shows how the world’s most iconic wildlife is being pushed to extinction by the demand for cheap meat. Watch it here:

 

 

Dead Zone takes us on an eye-opening, investigative journey across the globe, focussing on a dozen iconic species of wildlife and uncovering how industrial agriculture – factory farming – is having a major impact on their plight.

 

This is a passionate call for us all, laying bare the myths that prop up factory farming before exploring what we can do to save the planet with healthy food.

 

“Highly informed, utterly compelling… Lymbery’s narrative threads are subtle and replete with powerful evidence… He does a superb job of equipping us with the hard facts. No author can do more” –  Mark Cocker, New Statesman

 

Planet Earth: How mankind is threatening life on earth – A special documentary explaining what is going wrong with our food systems and how our desire for cheap meat is driving species to extinction.
