6. Lobsters never get ‘old’!
Well, not in the human sense of the word! The perfect example of ‘ageing gracefully’, lobsters don’t seem to suffer from any decline in strength or health and can just keep on keeping on, with adult lobsters retaining the vitality of youth and able to regrow limbs even at a century (or more) old!
The fact that lobsters are voiceless in the human understanding of the word doesn’t mean we shouldn’t listen to what scientists are telling us about them. It is clear that lobsters are unique creatures who have social bonds, feel pain and anxiety, and experience life in many of the same ways that we do. Now, more than ever, it’s time to recognise that these extraordinary animals are as equally worthy of the care and protection we give to our household companions.
Lobsters, crayfish, crabs, prawns and other marine animals are the often forgotten and silent victims of the fishing and ‘seafood’ industries. But you can help these animals who are just as deserving of compassion. And the good news is, we all have the power to take a stand against animal cruelty, starting today.
Reducing or replacing animal products in our meals is not only the most profound way to reduce animal suffering, it’s also best for the planet and for us as well. Eating plant-based is easy, delicious and it’s getting more popular, every single day.
