Yuan-Chih Lung is a policy researcher at ACTAsia. She received a grant for Animal Peptalk, a podcast targeted at a young Chinese audience that will help present information on animals and animal advocacy that includes local perspectives instead of having a Western influence. She’ll co-host it with Beck Peng and Kuan-Wei Wu. The podcast will invite relevant experts, NGOs, and activists to have in-depth discussions concerning animal-related hot topics and disputes, local and global animal issues, international animal advocacy and cultural relativism. She writes:
Animals are in a position of indifference in the Chinese community and there is no law of animal welfare in China now. Thus, there is a great need to promote animal advocacy in a novel way in line with people’s “Right to Know,” the interests of animals, and the need for sustainable social development.
