This briefing paper raises awareness of the negative impacts of rapidly expanding industrial livestock farming and large-scale cattle ranching on the world’s forests and biodiversity.

It focuses on the global social, cultural, ecological, and ethical impacts of an unsustainable industry – and the alternatives that exist. See the paper here.
