We are all thinking animals, so it’s imperative that we to spend more time thinking about what we’re doing to our planet and all the animals that share it with us. Thinking Animals United is a group based in New York City that organizes annual summits to bring together some of the sharpest minds in the animal welfare and environmental science fields. At the summit, these intellectual heavyweights share ideas, impart knowledge, and pledge to work together to save the planet.

AWM was excited to put together this short film, in which we stitched together interviews from these insightful individuals to impart one simple message: the future of the planet is at stake, so it’s time to unite as one, put our heads together, and create a better world for all animals
