S2 E5: Mark Wakeling

Mark Wakeling’s journey from hunter and soldier to vegan animal sanctuary owner is captivating.

The son of a man who ran livestock markets, where he worked as a boy, he used to hunt and fish and then became a soldier. After years in London as an actor and acting teacher, he returned to the country to find peace at Amberwood Sanctuary. @amberwoodanimals

👉🏽Founded in 2021, his sanctuary currently looks after 42 animals – 10 cows, 27 sheep and five pigs. The sanctuary is located at a former beef farm in the Oxfordshire countryside of England.

✨Their mission is to provide a safe home for animals who otherwise face slaughter.

✨This experience of turning a beef farm into a vegan sanctuary has inspired Mark’s vision of making it happen everywhere.
