4 million animals saved from live export

Since Animals Australia’s live export investigations began, increased scrutiny has made this cruel trade increasingly more difficult and expensive. Today, 4 million fewer animals are subjected to this death journey each year.

ALDI agrees to free hens from cages

A landmark victory for battery hens! ALDI, the fastest-growing supermarket chain in Australia, pledged to stop selling cage eggs after thousands of Animals Australia supporters fueled a bold, high-impact campaign.

80,000 waterbirds protected from shooters

The fight for native waterbirds began on the wetlands and continued all the way to the Supreme Court. Our legal battle successfully stopped the slaughter at several shooting ‘hot spots’, protecting tens of thousands of birds.

Animal abusers put behind bars

Months after our live baiting investigation rocked the greyhound racing industry, some justice was finally served. Three trainers were sentenced to prison for serious animal cruelty. A further 179 trainers were charged for illegally exporting dogs to their deaths in China.

Crossing borders to protect animals worldwide

Cruelty knows no borders and through our global arm, Animals International, neither do we. From the back streets of Lebanon to the worst slaughterhouses in Vietnam; for frightened Aussie sheep in Malaysia to Romania’s littlest live export victims — in 2016 you put us where animals needed us most.

Making the world a kinder place for all

In factory farms and slaughterhouses, we’re shining a light on cruelty, and inspiring kindness. In 2016, tens of thousands of free veg starter kits were distributed worldwide — helping caring people make kinder choices for animals.
