Beer and Bangers for the Birds in Los Angeles

December 14th, 2010 · by Garrison Frost

What would it be like if a bunch of cool people got together at a hip art gallery in Venice to talk about birds, taste some beers and enjoy some gourmet sausages? If you’re in Los Angeles, you can find out yourself on Feb. 11 when Audubon California and the G2 Gallery host “Beer and Bangers for the Birds.” The evening will start at 6:30 p.m.  The address of the G2 Gallery is 1503 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA 90291. The object here is to have some fun and share our enthusiasm for birds and nature. Consider this your Save the Date.  The event is free, but you’ve got to RSVP the Gallery at (310) 452-2842.

    We’ll have veggie versions on hand for those that prefer them.

    So disappointing how so many birders can have such reverence for one type of animal and then eat other animals without a second thought. Not to mention that Audubon’s mission “to conserve and protect nature’s at-risk birds and wildlife” should be completely at odds with eating animals, since animal agriculture is the single greatest contributor to global warming, which, as we all know, is causing profound habitat loss and threatening so many of the birds and wildlife we hold so dear. And why limit your compassion, caring and appreciation to only certain species? The 10 billion animals raised and slaughtered for food each year in this country are every bit as wonderful and deserving of life.

    I assume Audubon considers itself to be a humane and environmentally-friendly organization. Have you not seen how pigs (i.e., your “bangers”) are raised lately? http://www.mercyforanimals.org/pigs/ Are you not aware of the grave pollution and destruction these farms are causing? http://www.nrdc.org/water/pollution/ffarms.asp

    I certainly will not be contributing any money to an organization that can’t make the simple connection between what we put on our plate and how it affects ALL the precious life forms that inhabit and SHARE this planet. http://www.idausa.org/campaigns/vegan/eco-eating.html

    Please get a clue, Audubon. The birds and wildlife are counting on you.
