At this time of giving, the team at Knowing Animals brings you a special additional episode of the podcast. This episode features Naty Guerrero-Diaz from Big Sky Sanctuary in Victoria, Australia. Naty tells us about her transition from urban-based vegan to sanctuary owner and worker. We also ask you to consider making a donation to Big Sky Sanctuary to help then raise the money they need to put a second house on their property. The second house would allow more people to volunteer at the sanctuary and increase their ability to care for the animals.
