Brighter Green fellow Isabel Schmidt interviewed Dr. Wadchara Pumpradit recently for a piece in Sentient Media called “The Most Dedicated Activists Don’t Always Shout the Loudest.” Pumpradit has long been involved in public health work and currently has been on the frontlines of COVID-19, treating patients in Bangkok, Thailand. In addition, he is a leading animal advocate who founded and runs The Catalyst in Bangkok to promote plant-based eating and animal welfare. He has also worked with photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur (of We Animals Media) to depict slaughterhouse practices in Thailand. He hopes that work is a catalyst for other animal welfare issues to be given attention. He also discusses the connection that the pandemic has to animal rights as well as the intersections between his work as a doctor and his work with animal rights. He has hope that younger generations will successfully change the status quo and create a new world. You can read the full interview here.
