The raising of livestock is responsible for one-third of worldwide water consumption, up to 45 percent of land use and 1 percent of rainforest destruction. It is a leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones and habitat destruction, making it the most destructive industry facing the planet today.

The Sustainable Community Film Series, a project of Walking Mountains Science Center, continues this month with two screenings of “Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret.” The series is intended to raise awareness and encourage community dialogue about environmental, economic and social issues afflicting our world, and this film seeks to understand why the country’s largest environmental organizations are not talking about the issue of livestock.

“Cowspiracy” will be featured on Tuesday at Loaded Joe’s in Avon and April 19 at The Dusty Boot in Eagle; both showings start at 6:30 p.m.
