Terrastendo is the blogging site of environmental and animal rights campaigner, Paul Mahony. Apart from the occasional new item, the website is having an indefinite break from late January 2018. More recent material can be found at Planetary Vegan.


I have tried to convince people of the need to treat climate change and other environmental threats as an emergency. If we do not, then catastrophic conditions are inevitable for current and future generations.

I have also wanted to open people’s eyes to the horrific cruelty we impose on other animals, and the need to respect their right to exist without any need to fulfil the desires of humans.

Thank you to everyone who has shown an interest in the material and the related issues.
