Animals Australia speaks to Landline


PUBLISHED ON: 17 June 2013

Come behind the scenes of Animals Australia with ABC's Landline, and find out more about who we are and what we do.

As our voice for animals grows stronger, more and more people are impacted by Animals Australia's work. ABC's Landline recently came to speak with Animals Australia — and explore a bit about who we are, what we do, and importantly, why we do it.

In recent years we have achieved a lot for animals, however, not everyone is very happy about our work ... particularly those directly involved in cruel industries like factory farming and live animal export. But our 'agenda' is clear: we are here for the animals.

Watch the story to also hear what Coles, the pork industry, the live export industry and others are saying about our campaigns...
