A vegan since 1980, Dr. Will Tuttle co-founded the Circle of Compassion and the Worldwide Prayer Circle For Animals. He is the author of The World Peace Diet and a former Zen monk who studied in Korea. A prolific pianist and composer, Dr. Tuttle is also a dynamic speaker who captivated a full tent of listeners during Animal Place's first Farmed Animal Conference in 2015.
