236 Heading for disaster

Sometimes concern for people and animals coincided: back in 1824 William Wilberforce, who had led the struggle to abolish slavery, co-founded the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. This late twentieth-century poster of the Deutscher Tierschutzbund related people to animals – both equally threatened by dangers to which animals were still more vulnerable and seemed to call for a new Noah’s Ark.
