Find out how Australia ranks on the World Animal Protection Index

08 January 2015

Have you ever wondered how different countries around the world work to protect animals? How do you think Australia would rate?

Our unique new online tool, made possible by your support, will help you find out.

Our Animal Protection Index (API) launched in late 2014. It ranks 50 countries according to their commitment to protecting animals and improving animal welfare.

It reveals for the first time how each country’s law and national policy protects animals so you can explore and compare and see how Australia’s animal welfare policies rate against other countries.

An essential tool to encourage better protection for animals.

“The API will be a vital tool in helping us convince countries to improve their animal welfare performance and help build support for our campaigns.” says our head of policy and advocacy, Ricardo Fajardo.

“We are very excited by this worldwide first. The API shows where there’s room for improvement, and celebrates achievements. It features countries with policies and legislation that protect animals, while also drawing attention to effective government structures and animal protection education commitments.”
