A BBC website put it best:

The press often confuses animal activists with animal extremists.

Animal activists live their lives in an animal-friendly way and use only conventional means to promote the animal cause. These include:

Diet

Not eating animal products

Shopping

Avoiding products tested on animals
Avoiding products made with leather or fur

Living in an animal friendly way

Avoiding pesticides
Avoiding products that harm the environment

Education

Learning about animal issues
Teaching others about animal issues

Entertainment

Avoiding zoos and circuses

Investment

Investing only in companies with animal-friendly policies

Politics

Lobbying for pro-animal legislation
Campaigning about animal issues
Telling other people about animal issues
Writing books and articles about animal issues
The animal rights activist doesn't just talk about the issue, he/she does something about it.
