Are There Really 60 Harvests Left? Philip Lymbery On The Race To Save The Planet
Welcome back to another episode of the PBN podcast!
Today we have Philip Lymbery Global Chief Executive of animal welfare charity 'Compassion in World Farming'.
Philip is an ornithologist, photographer, dedicated animal advocate and award-winning author who has been leading Compassion for more than a decade. His critically acclaimed books, Farmageddon: The true cost of cheap meat, and Dead Zone: where the wild things were, were the first mainstream books to show factory farming as a major driver of wildlife declines and at the heart of what needs to change to stave off the climate, nature and pandemic emergencies now facing humanity. His third book, Sixty Harvests Left: How to reach a nature-friendly future, will be published by Bloomsbury in August 2022.
