We joined volunteers from a Buddhist animal sanctuary to document the ‘mercy release’ of over 5,000 foxes and raccoon dogs from a farm in Changli, China.
It is a special kind of torture to cage a duck. In 2019, We Animals Media joined the Environment and Animal Society of Taiwan (EAST) to investigate and document animal industries around the country, including one disturbing new agricultural trend: caged duck farming.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of our Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for our forthcoming book, HIDDEN: Animals in the Anthropocene. HIDDEN is an unflinching book of photography about our conflict with non-human animals around the globe, as depicted through the lenses of thirty award-winning photojournalists.
In recent months following the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the world has been introduced to “wet markets”. They are places common across Asia for all things perishable, such as fruits, vegetables, and – most notably – animals, dead or alive.
