Be the voice for animals in Australia
Who is Animals Australia Inc.?
Animals Australia is Australia’s foremost national animal protection organisation, representing some 40 member societies and thousands of individual supporters. Animals Australia has an unprecedented track record in investigating and exposing animal cruelty and for conducting world-first strategic public awareness campaigns.
Animals Australia’s vision is a world where all animals are treated with compassion and respect and are free from cruelty. They believe that we can create a kinder world for all by fostering respect for animals and that our treatment of animals reflects who we are as individuals and as a society.
Animals Australia’s investigations investigations have been featured on every current affairs program in the country including Four Corners, 60 Minutes, Today Tonight, A Current Affair, The Project, Lateline and Landline. Investigations throughout the Middle East and South East Asia exposing cruelty in the live export trade resulted in the first ever suspension of live animal exports – to Egypt in 2006 then Indonesia in 2011 – and sweeping reforms to the operation of the entire industry. The organisation’s investigation into the factory farming of pigs in Australia which aired on 60 Minutes was a catalyst to the pig industry agreeing to restrict the use of pregnant sow stalls by 2017.
Lyn White is Animals Australia’s Campaign Director and Chief Investigator. Her work as an animal advocate has been acknowledged through being named a state finalist for Australian of the Year in 2011; in the same year being declared ABC Newsradio’s ‘Newsmaker of the year’ and Crikey.com’s ‘Person of the Year’; and being determined one of Victoria’s most influential people.
We’re all in this together
Most Australians — regardless of what they choose to eat — care about animals, and support action that helps protect them from cruelty. Animals raised for food outnumber humans by a staggering degree — yet they are underrepresented to an equally staggering degree. They cannot vote. They cannot cry out against cruelty. They have no voice to oppose injustice. Most are not even afforded the same basic legal protection from cruelty that protects our pets at home… In short, they need the voice of every caring person willing to speak up for them.
So, Animals Australia does not exist to represent vegetarians, vegans, or meat-eaters. They exist to represent animals. And they stand side-by-side with every person who wishes to see them protected from cruelty and who wishes to join us to create a kinder, more compassionate world.
