Philip Lymbery launches his new book in South Africa - July 2017

From the author of the internationally acclaimed Farmageddon, we now have Dead Zone: Where the Wild Things Were, an eye-opening investigative journey across the globe, focusing on a dozen iconic species one-by-one, and looking in each case at the role that industrial farming is playing in their plight. Author Philip Lymbery, CEO of Compassion in World Farming, gives us a passionate wake-up call, laying bare the myths that prop up factory farming before exploring what we can do to save the planet with healthy food.
