Despite our attempts to reduce, reuse and recycle, we seem no further forward with the worldwide problem of plastic. The big plastic count is the UK’s biggest investigation into plastic waste and will pressure governments and supermarkets into making real changes.
Between 2014 and 2018, around 15,00 hunting trophies from 73 internationally protected species were imported into the EU. That’s close to 3,000 every year and it puts the EU second only to the US for imports in the world. All these animals are killed for fun, it’s time to act.
Stary dogs in Mauritius are caught in nets, left hot, hungry and thirsty in cages and then killed with a painful, often ineffective lethal injection, all in the name of management. It’s time for change – help the SOI Dog Foundation fight for an end to catch and kill.
Every year, thousands of dogs suffer unimaginable cruelty at Yulin dog meat festival. They are taken off the streets and stolen from homes, crammed into cages without food or water and killed in horrific ways. It’s time to stop the torture.
Throughout the world, thousands of animals are subjected to cruelty for the sake of beauty products. Rabbits, mice and rats, and many other animals, suffer in silence as companies expose them to harmful chemicals and products. They are then left to endure the pain while scientists watch for reactions.
We’ve all seen the photos; happy tourists posing with cute tiger cubs. They look fabulous, but the reality is far less joyful. Cubs are taken from their mums, treated cruelly and kept in horrible conditions. They are forced to interact with people and then abandoned to private zoos or killed when they grow too big.
Our animals are suffering, and our planet is in trouble. Switching to a vegan diet or simply eating less meat, dairy, and animal products will show animals you care and positively impact your health and the environment.
Christmas is the time for giving but animals so often suffer for our gifts, being held captive where they are tested on and exposed to pain and suffering. But it doesn’t have to be this way, shop compassionately this year and help give animals a kinder future.
Every day, thousands of animals are forced into the multi-billion pound global trade in wildlife where they are killed for food, harvested for traditional medicine, traded as ‘exotic’ pets or subjected to a life of suffering in entertainment. Join us as we fight for a ban on importing and exporting wild animals.
With climate change and the worldwide loss of biodiversity becoming ever more urgent, make time to stand up and show your support by participating in Earth Hour 2020.
Litter is everywhere – blowing down our streets, lying in our countryside and floating in our oceans. Much of it is plastic, which can take 1000s of years to break down and is ingested by everything from plankton to people! It’s time clean up!
Wildfires have been devasting Australia for five months now, killing millions of animals and leaving many more homeless without food, water or shelter. The impact is catastrophic. Donate now to help with essential rescue and recovery operations.
The high demand for meat is fueling intensive farming practices and animal cruelty. Animals are subjected to overcrowding in poor conditions, mutilation, rapid growth, and injury and stress from rough handling during capture, transport, and slaughter. Act now to put an end to factory farming.
Thousands of sentient animals suffer and die in traps and snares on grouse moors across Scotland, set in order to control predators or so-called “vermin” that interfere with sporting pursuits.
Birds of prey in zoos and display centres are often tethered to a perch for the majority of their lives, unable to express their most natural behaviour; flight. They exhibit signs of stress and have no shelter from public scrutiny.
The large demand for animal products, such as meat, eggs and milk has created the need for intensive animal farming practices. To save space and money, animals are kept under cruel conditions, often crammed into small cages with little room to move. Act now to end the cage age.
