Toni Shephard

Toni ShephardToni Shephard is UK director of Animal Equality and has been a vegan animal activist for more than 25 years, much to the dismay of her butcher father! Born and raised in Canada, she has lived in the UK for more than 20 years and worked for many UK animal protection groups including PETA, Animal Aid, Viva! and League Against Cruel Sports. Over the past 20 years she has filmed inside dozens of factory farms and never ceases to be shocked by the cruel conditions and 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 suffer, coupled with the increasing number of vegans, gives her hope for a vegan future. She also holds a PhD in animal behavior.
