“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”  Martin Luther King, Jr.

“. . . if we could recognise who we really are, rather than beings who were magically and separately created from the rest of nature, and if we could come to grips with that reality, then maybe we could be aroused from the stupor that we find ourselves in and begin to save ourselves.”  Ann Druyan (Late Night Live, ABC Radio National, 13th December, 2007)

Terrastendo is the blogging site of environmental and animal rights campaigner, Paul Mahony.

My articles can be accessed via links under the “Issues” heading below or in the menu above. You can also find past papers, presentations and radio interviews.

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 past tweets and Facebook posts at the bottom of each page, along with a search bar for the site.
