What Is The Difference Between Vegan And Plant Based?

I am new to the vegan lifestyle. What is the difference between vegan and plant based? I have tried to research both but it seems like they are the same thing. Can you explain the differences to me?

With a vegan diet, you don’t eat any animal products (meat, fish, seafood, poultry, dairy food, and honey). A plant-based diet does not exclude these products, it is just focused mostly on plant-based products (vegetables, fruits, whole grains, plant-based oils, nuts and seeds, tofu), but it can include some animal products as well.
