Great news! The Animal Welfare Amendment Bill to ban live export recently passed its third and final reading in Parliament in Aotearoa (New Zealand)!
Exporting cows, sheep, and other animals from New Zealand by sea will finally stop on 30 April 2023.
Australian cows and sheep are transported thousands of kilometres in filthy and dangerous conditions. They’re forced to endure the journey in all weather extremes, standing in their own waste, causing distress, injuries, and disease.
Now New Zealand has taken a stand against this cruelty, all eyes are on Australia to follow suit.
Mark, thank you for previously urging officials to end this trade in Australia using our action alert. Will you take action again to urge recently appointed federal Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Murray Watt to implement a ban immediately?
Thanks for all you do for cows, pigs, sheep, and other animals.
