This is the official web site for The League for Earth & Animal Protection ( LEAP ), a national, nonprofit organization established in 1992. If you are like other compassionate people, you share a concern for nonhuman animals and the environment and oppose cruelty, abuse, and despoilment.
LEAP promotes animal liberation because it believes that all animals have value and interests, independent of their usefulness to human beings. To read about the difference between animal liberation/rights and animal welfare, click here.
The LEAP founders have adopted the philosophy that all living beings are worthy of equal consideration, that animals and nature need protection, and that they should be included within our current legal and political system. LEAP teaches a compassionate way of living based on the principle of Ahimsa--nonviolence towards all living things.
LEAP is dedicated to advocacy and education on issues affecting domesticated nonhumans, such as vegetarianism and veganism, vivisection, dissection, animals in entertainment, pound seizure, factory farming, animal shelter policies, and spay and neuter programs, as well as issues affecting wildlife and the environment, such as species extinction, habitat encroachment, ecosystem imbalance, global warming, and resource conservation. LEAP hopes that its work will lead to the elimination of environmental destruction and ecologically unsound policies. LEAP informs via public speaking, special events, and information-based campaigns.
The Board of Directors and its officers receive no compensation, and LEAP activities are supported by unpaid volunteers; thus, all donated funds are applied directly towards the League's goals. Membership fees wholly support LEAP's educational and advocacy programs.
Click on the "Campaigns" link above for further information about some of LEAP's current campaigns and upcoming events; or check out articles through the "News Articles" link. For those who are philosophically inclined, the "Philosophical Articles" link might be of interest.
