I am excited to share that Dead Zone: Where the Wild Things Were launches in the USA today (20th June).

CIWF USA will be spreading the message about how factory farming causes immense harm to wildlife, as well as to farm animals.

Whilst undertaking the two year global investigation for Dead Zone, I travelled to America, where the majestic bison once roamed freely in their millions. Now, they are on the brink of extinction. They are confined within set boundaries; if they roam outside of these they are shot and if their numbers swell, they are culled. This is documented in the Dead Zone short film ‘Bye Bye Bison’.

Bye Bye Bison

The majestic bison once roamed freely in their millions across the Great Plains of America. Now, they are on the brink of extinction. With only around 15,000 truly wild bison in the US they are approaching threatened status.

BBC Wildlife magazine featured a fantastic five page article entitled ‘Of Bison and Burgers’ where I detailed further the plight of bison on America’s Great Plains, and spoke about sustainable alternatives where bison, farming, and healthy land can all coincide in harmony.

I’m pleased to have already seen a great review of Dead Zone in US Publisher’s Weekly and I am confident that the Dead Zone message will be received positively in the US, pushing forward the movement towards a more sustainable food system; kinder to animals, conducive to farming and healthier for consumers.

You can buy Dead Zone from the retailers listed here, and the audio book is available to purchase here.
