Spotlight: Moving Animals

Moving Animals, shot and produced by filmmaker Miguel Endara, is a powerful short documentary that captures our founder, Jo-Anne McArthur during her time at the Bulgarian-Turkish border in 2018. It depicts the scale of live animal export in Europe and follows along as Jo stays quietly and diligently with the animals throughout the process.

“I'm a photographer of animals, and for animals.”

Jo-Anne McArthur Joins 2020 World Press Photo Jury

Each year the World Press Photo Contest invites a select few professional photographers from around the world to choose and award the best visual journalism from the prior year. This year, we’re so pleased that Jo was invited to join the process as a member of the Nature Jury. It’s an important acknowledgement of her contributions to the field, and highlights the growing importance of animal photojournalism in relation to nature and wildlife photography.

2020: A Year in Review

As we leap into 2021 with hope and determination, we want to acknowledge the impact that we’ve been able to make together on behalf of animals in 2020. While this past year was far from what any of us could have expected, every angle of it reminded us why we do what we do. From Australian bushfires to historic pandemics, the stories of animals continue to emerge at the center of some of the most important issues of our time.

The Way Forward

People often ask us for advice and ideas on how to take action for animals in their everyday lives. We’ve created “The Way Forward,” a companion PDF to HIDDEN, to show how we can all take part. Throughout the month of January, we shared a series of actions across our social media platforms as a way to inspire people to help animals worldwide. There are so many ways to make a difference. Take a look at the series, then download and share!

As always, a huge thank you to our network of supporters. Your donations and generosity fuel the work that we do. We’re looking forward to another year of building this community - and a kinder world for animals - together. If you’d like to become a supporter of our work in 2021, please consider one of the many ways you can make a donation today.
