Drone on the Farm: An Aerial Exposé

Photographer Mishka Henner documented factory farm pollution—like this waste lagoon at a Texas feedlot—by satellite. What else could drone photography uncover?

The brilliant Will Potter from Green is the new Red has a new Kickstarter campaign called: Drone on the Farm: An Aerial Exposé.

Factory farms clearly have something to hide. That’s why “ag-gag” laws, which make it illegal to photograph or film farms and slaughterhouses, are spreading internationally. But the best way to combat such secrecy is with sunlight.

Will will be using drones to take aerial photographs of factory farms. Check out all the details on his Kickstarter!

Please consider helping Will with his kickstarter. With your help, He’ll be able to use new investigative journalism tools to expose what some corporations want to keep hidden.

While you’re at it … watch this short 4 minute TED video with Will. He’s the real deal.
Go Will go! :)

    Hi Sarah,

    This looks like a really important campaign (it’s scary the lengths that Big Ag will go to to keep people in the dark!)

    Also, on a personal note, I just wanted to say that I think you’re awesome! I have your first three cookbooks, and I bought the first one way back in the late ’90s. In fact, my copy of “How It All Vegan” is one of the first-run copies that didn’t have the index at the back, lol.

    I was vegetarian when I bought those cookbooks, and I thought at the time that I could never go vegan. That being said, all the recipes in your cookbooks were huge hits with friends and family – none of whom were even vegetarian. But it took me a pretty long time to connect the dots and to realize that eggs and dairy are definitely NOT cruelty free; I remained mostly vegetarian for many years. But more recently, over the past year, I started reading up as much as I possibly could, including all about the animal cruelty inherent in the meat industry (and definitely also in the dairy industry – I was pretty shocked by all the things I read).

    After my eyes were opened, there was no going back and it was a very easy decision to go vegan. I’ve been very happily vegan for about 6 months now, and I plan to be vegan for life.

    And your cookbooks have a very prominent spot on my cookbook shelf :)
