How You Can Save Over 400 Animals Every YearOmnivores directly consume about 85 animals a year. However, the number of animal deaths omnivores are responsible for is exponentially larger when you consider the trillion tons of sea creatures who die as bycatch; the downed animals who couldn’t walk onto the kill floor; and the billions of other animals who suffered to death in the agricultural industry. Taking these figures into account, a vegetarian saves on average 406 animals every year. Imagine if you included the millions of male egg-laying chickens who, because they will never lay eggs, are killed after hatching. Consider also the bob calves who are shot at birth due to being a byproduct of the dairy industry. Thus as a vegan you will save even more lives.
When one person is applauded as a hero for saving a dog from drowning, shouldn’t saving over 400 animals every year be seen as a remarkable achievement? If you live another 40 years as a vegan you will save over 16,200 animals. Now that is a reason to celebrate!
How many animals will you save if you live to be 80 years old?
406 animals saved x (number of years you have been vegan until today)
+ 406 animals saved x (number of years until you are 80 years old)
= (total number of animals you will save in your lifetime)
