Saving the environment is not an issue anymore. It is a survival truth. Individuals, organizations and governments need to come together and join hands to protect what is left of our planet so that the future is not wiped out before it’s time for curtain call. Apart from all the common citizens, Bollywood star John Abraham has joined the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals cause. We all know John’s passion for fitness and bikes, but he is equally passionate about helping unprivileged people and fighting against animal cruelty. His contribution towards the betterment of community and animals is highly noticeable. John believes animals are innocent and can’t express their feelings but they equally feel the pain and pleasure as humans do.

In the latest PETA ad, John tries to raise awareness about the cruelty involved in the capture, breeding, and caging of birds.

“Birds aren’t meant to learn silly human words or swing in a cage,” the hunky actor says, holding an empty cage. “They are supposed to roam free in the skies and sing songs for each other.”

Animals and plants need each other. When too many species die out too quickly, other species suffer. Plants and trees filter our water and give us oxygen. Birds help to control pests and spread seeds. Bacteria and insects make soil more fertile so that crops can grow. Humans need many different animals for food and clothes and animals need other animals for food.
