Please email the Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture to thank them for banning live export by sea and to demand that this ban be implemented immediately.

This month, the New Zealand Government announced a ban on all livestock export by sea. More than 57,000 of you directly pleaded with our Prime Minister and Minister for Agriculture, asking them both for a ban on cruel live export – and our voices were heard.While this is a historic step forward, we are concerned about the tens of thousands of animals that will continue to suffer for the next two years during phase-out, as well as the animals that continue to be exported by air.
The Minister for Agriculture has said he could end this trade now and he’s chosen not to.
This isn’t good enough for animals, and it’s not good enough for us as campaigners.
Help SAFE take action by emailing the Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture to thank them for banning live export by sea and to demand that this ban be implemented immediately.
