Over nearly two decades, together we’ve helped protect millions of animals from the horrors of live export.
Progress for Australian animals
In 2002, just before supporters like you enabled us to start in-depth investigative and campaigning work on live export, Australia exported more than 6 million sheep. A shocking figure, and a horrible one. But last year, that number was reduced to 760,918. An 87% drop. Collectively, that means millions and millions of animals have been spared from live export over nearly two decades.
Without our supporters taking action and funding our investigations and initiatives, live export companies could still be sending 6 million sheep — and potentially many more — to endure stressful shipboard journeys and terrifying deaths every single year.
Of course, 760,918 is still too many. One is too many. So: the effort continues. With your ongoing support, we’ll continue doing everything we can to protect animals from this terrible trade.
