Lobsters, Octopus And Crabs Recognised As Sentient Beings



If only animals could speak the language we understand, the world would be a kinder place for them.


We are encouraged by this news that lobsters, octopuses and crabs are recognised as sentient beings. Animal sentience is the capacity of an animal to experience different feelings such as suffering or pleasure. Sentience also extends to an animal’s ability to learn from experience and other animals, assess risks and benefits and make choices.

You know what to do, if you are decided on making a difference! It often starts from our plates.
