The country that currently sends around 3 million live farm animals on terrible journeys around the world each year to be used as « breeding stock » will phase out the practice in the next two years. It’s a huge win for animals!

PETA Australia has written several times to the New Zealand government asking them to ban the export of live animals – most recently only last month after a blockade in the Suez Canal that left at least 20 ships with cows and Sheep were trapped and hundreds of thousands of people were killed in endangered animals.

PETA previously highlighted the dire conditions in which animals travel at sea for weeks, enduring seasickness, crowding and exposure to all weather conditions.

Animals like cows , Pigs and sheep – including babies and pregnant women – are transported hundreds or even thousands of kilometers to be killed or reared for slaughter. The conditions are dirty and dangerous. They are forced to endure the journey in all weather extremes, to stand in their own garbage and to cause suffering, injuries and diseases.

New Zealand decided in 2008 to stop exporting live animals for slaughter. Just because the country’s animals have not since been sent directly overseas for slaughter does not mean that they are less prone to disease and death in ships, and if they survive it does not mean that they will live happy lives / p> In 2020, New Zealand exported nearly 3 million live farm animals, including 110,000 cows that will spend their short lives being forcibly impregnated on intensive dairy farms in China.
Day-old chicks make up the vast majority of animals exported. They are being torn from their mothers and crated by the thousands to be shipped overseas.

The New Zealand government has taken an historic and compassionate step. With this decision, the Ardern government said « no more » to sending millions of animals – and many people – on terrible journeys fraught with injury, dehydration, starvation, disease and death.

The UK government has plans announced that it would also ban the export of live animals in order to strengthen animal welfare laws after Brexit. We recently completed the government consultation on the matter, calling for a complete and permanent end to this cruel industry. Please send Environment Secretary George Eustice a message to remind him that animals cannot wait any longer:

And don’t forget cows and other animals from Ireland. Contact the Irish Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Navy to let him know that exporting live cattle is synonymous with cruelty to animals and must be stopped:

Will the fact that your closest neighbor is taking this compassionate step, Australia cause it to end its export industry too? Tell the Australian High Commissioner to finally put an end to this disgusting, dangerous deal:
