We felt that our “Dog & Pony Shows” theme month would not be complete without featuring someone who is taking on the eco-threats facing all animals. Rhea Landig is an extraordinary multi-talented woman who has channeled her alarm about the environmental state of the world into powerful actions: ranging from public messaging, community development and offering the public immediate actions and solutions. And you don’t have to take my word for it, astronomer, naturalist, writer, farmhand, vegan Wolf Grey Adonis describes her as “A vigilant Earth pilgrim, guardian of the plants, animals, and all of Earth’s bounty. A lover of our home. An activist steering our culture towards just and sustainable lifestyles with purpose to support the web of life. Rhea chooses to evolve.” I first met Landig years ago when she was doing fundraising work for the Species Alliance documentary and I have continued to be impressed at her track record of being on the right side of science. Personally, I have always found her fierce and indefatigable in her advocacy and trust that you too will appreciate her posts even as her revelations make you uncomfortable.

Before joining Species Alliance, Rhea was a former high profile media professional whose career spanned over twenty-five years as an editor, producer and spokesperson. After learning about the mass extinction crisis in 2006, Rhea began raising funds to produce the first full length feature documentary, Call of Life ~ Facing the Mass Extinction, along with the newly formed organization, Species Alliance, the first non profit dedicated to raising awareness about the current mass extinction crisis. Rhea officially joined the organization in 2010 as a board member and Director of Development.
Now at the helm of the organization, Rhea and Species Alliance continue to share the mission ~ to inform through various forms of media and outreach to ignite a new sense of community empowerment and purpose, in order to stimulate creative and effective changes in public policies and human behavior that will assure a healthy future for all life on earth.
