End live animal export

The Problem

  • Millions of our sheep and cattle suffer unnecessarily during live export because of the unbearable conditions on board.
  • The extreme stress, illness and injury the animals endure can go on for journeys of up to 35 days.
  • Thousands of animals die in transit. Many of those that survive the journey are handled roughly at their destination,  killed while fully conscious and too many suffer outright brutality. 

The Solution

  • Moving from live export to the chilled and frozen meat trade will protect millions of animals from needless suffering.
  • Independent research shows that this more humane alternative will protect Australian farmers, the economy and create new jobs.
  • This alternative is achievable and consistent with the responsibilities of government.
