Toni Shephard is UK director of Animal Equality, an international animal protection organisation working to expose and end the suffering of farmed animals. Over the past 25 years she has worked for numerous animal rights organisations and campaigned passionately for animals around the world. She has filmed inside dozens of factory farms and never ceases to be shocked by the cruel practices farmed animals are forced to endure. The knowledge that most people are inherently opposed to animal suffering and simply do not know how badly farmed animals are treated, coupled with the growing number of plant-based foods, gives her hope for a factory farming-free future. She also holds a PhD in animal behaviour.
