Well known animal and human rights advocate Patty Shenker stops by the podcast to teach us everything she knows about palm oil.
Patty has been fighting for animals since 1975. Her accomplishments include: co-founding Animal Acres Sanctuary, funding spay and neuter programs in Los Angeles, successfully getting the abused elephant, Ruby, out of the LA Zoo and into PAWS Sanctuary, lobbying for powerful animal welfare legislation such as the just passed California ban on animal tested cosmetics and she's traveled numerous times to Thailand, Cambodia and Indonesia to help the orangutans and elephants, who are both facing extinction.
Patty has been honored by Wildlife SOS, the California Wildlife Center, Animal Acres, Stray Cat Alliance and New Life Animal Sanctuary as well as receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from VegFest.
