PETA 40th Anniversary with Ingrid Newkirk

Forty years ago, Ingrid Newkirk founded PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), now the largest animal rights organization in the world. She now joins bestselling author Gene Stone to create Animalkind, an exploration into the wonder and richness of animal lives and the revolutionary and simple ways in which human beings can help protect them.

She talks with Sasha Rionda about her latest book, the 40th anniversary of PETA and the new awareness of animals as fellow travelers on the planet, whose abilities and emotional lives warrant our respect.
