Update – Submission to Australian Government re Live Exports.
Mark, we want to thank you for speaking up for Australian sheep.
Today, we delivered our submission to the Department of Agriculture’s review into how heat stress is managed for sheep in live export.
The response to our call to support the important reforms being made through the heat stress review has been INCREDIBLE.
Over 13,000 Australians have joined our submission, on what is a fairly complex and technical issue. These reforms could not only better protect our sheep, but they could ultimately spell the end of the live sheep export industry.
It’s now almost a year after the horrific Awassi Express footage of sheep suffering on journeys to the Middle East was aired, and it’s clear that we as a community feel more strongly about this issue than ever before.
The truth is Australians don’t support live sheep export, and that’s not going to change.
THANK YOU to everyone who has added their voice to our call and made a submission to this review, not to mention the countless other actions you have taken to end the suffering of sheep in live export.
