Today we are going to speak with

 Merrilee Burke  PETA's project manager for animals in film and television, Merrilee Burke advises producers, studio executives, directors, and screenwriters on the use of animals in film and television. And in her short time with PETA, Burke has already hit several milestones: She launched PETA's new website AnimalsInFilmAndTV.com, which provides the entertainment industry with vital information about working with animals, and she helped lead PETA's successful campaign to have Animal Practice—the NBC show featuring a captive capuchin monkey—permanently canceled.  Burke has also met privately with many people in the industry who decided NOT to use animals in their projects after learning from Burke how these animals are kept in constant confinement, denied everything that is natural and important to them, and subjected to abusive training methods.
