Hello, and welcome to Terrastendo, the blogging site of environmental and animal rights campaigner, Paul Mahony.

The aim of the site is to help remove what I believe are blinkers and blindspots in the community, resulting from social, cultural and commercial conditioning. You can find my Twitter and Facebook feeds, along with a search bar for the site, at the bottom of each page.

I am interested in your thoughts on these issues, and encourage you to leave comments at the end of my posts.

I launched Terrastendo in late December, 2012.  Some of my earlier material can be found here.
