We are making a difference for animals!

Every new investigation makes it more and more difficult for the live export industry to defend the cruelty it is responsible for. These exposés have sparked official Government investigations, several of which are still pending outcomes. While live export continues, Animals Australia continues to push for the strongest possible penalties to be imposed on offending exporters.

With hundreds of thousands of Australians calling on MPs to end this cruel trade, there is not a single politician in Australia whose conscience is not troubled on some level, by our country’s continued involvement in live exports. You can help create much needed change for animals by asking your MP to represent your views, and by supporting our investigators by making a donation today.

Together, we will end live animal exports.
