The Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation is the scientific bureau of the Party for the Animals. The NGPF’s goal is to conduct scientific research and increase public knowledge and awareness of social issues, most particularly with regard to animal welfare, animal rights, sustainability and nature. The NGPF explores and presents alternatives that can contribute to the realisation of a more pleasant, animal-friendly and sustainable society. In so doing, the Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation endeavours to make existing scientific research and knowledge far more accessible to the broader public and to stimulate societal and political debate on such themes. In addition, the NGPF also initiates scientific research studies itself. As an intermediary between science, society and politics, the Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation strives to provide both the public and political world with food for thought. The Foundation makes an important contribution to the social discourse on issues such as animal welfare and sustainability by publishing articles and reports, holding lectures and participating in debates. The much-discussed documentary Meat the Truth, which explores the impact of intensive livestock farming on global warming, is just one example of the activities that the NGPF has developed. Further to this, the Foundation supports the regional working groups of the Party for the Animals with respect to the development of activities such as thematic meetings and debates. The Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation is primarily supported by private donations. In addition, the Foundation receives a governmental subsidy for its activities. The Foundation is managed by a board of governors; the director is an advisory member of this board.

Film synopsis: 
After the worldwide success of “Meat the Truth”, which was translated in 13 different languages and released in 16 different countries, the Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation has made another documentary, named “Sea the Truth”. The state of our oceans and seas is the main focus in “Sea the Truth”. Leading scientists such as Daniel Pauly suggest that if we continue to catch and eat fish at the current rate, the oceans and seas will be empty within 40 years. The hunt for fish is an economic monster on the run: large bottom trawlers are scraping the bottoms of the seas empty, taking with them all living things with destructive force. The massive amount of bycatch is thrown back into the sea, maimed or dead. Under the guidance of Dutch MP Marianne Thieme, two young marine biologists Marianne and Barbara, are searching worldwide for scientific information about the condition of our biggest ecosystems, which cover more than two thirds of our planet. Underwater photographer Dos Winkel shows them the beauty of marine life and the enormous threats to which it is exposed. For the documentary the producers filmed in Newfoundland, on Bonaire, on the North Sea, the Azores and at various locations in the Netherlands. Authorities offer the solution of sustainable fisheries projects while leading scientists say that every fish that is taken now, is one too many. This documentary shows that, unfortunately, there is no such thing as “sustainable fishing”. “Sea the Truth” premiered on May 19th in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. ~ ~
