Celebrate the birthday of author/essayist/environmentalist Edward Abbey (January 29, 1927 -- March 14, 1989). His "works, set primarily in the southwestern United States, reflect an uncompromising environmentalist philosophy" (from Britannica.com).
From Pantheist Vision:
The primary goal of this day is to develop a compassionate culture to make our world a fairer place for all living creatures -- where animals are recognized as sentient beings and full regard is always paid to their welfare. Celebrated in a variety of different ways in many countries, with no regard to nationality, religion, faith, or political ideology, World Animal Day sometimes includes a Blessing of the Animals."
