Mark, you have been with us in our ongoing fight to end the suffering of sheep in the live export trade.
You – along with tens of thousands of other supporters – have already taken countless actions.
But we need your help one more time to help end the cruelty for good.
The government review panel has got the science right (at last!), when it comes to heat stress experienced by sheep onboard these journeys.
We’ve said all along that the evidence shows heat stress is unavoidable on board journeys to the Middle East in the high risk May to October period.
Now, the recently released Heat Stress Risk Assessment Review has been opened for public consultation, and all recommendations support what we have been calling for:
- a risk assessment based on welfare, not mortality,
- and one that will ultimately mean the end to the most horrific conditions experienced by thousands of Aussie sheep each year.
This is the review we’ve been waiting for – but live export lobbyists are desperately trying to stop these improvements and roll back these reforms.
Mark make no mistake – these reforms are the bare minimum of what needs to be done to protect our sheep.
Please take action today and add your voice to the RSPCA submission, supporting these vital improvements to protect Australian sheep from the live export industry.
