Twenty-two year old student Lisa Patterson wrote to us recently to let us know she’ll be representing World Animal Protection at Sydney’s City2Surf 14K fun run in August. She is hoping to raise $3,000 for animals around the world and is nearly half way to her target with 8 weeks to go.
The world’s first responsible tour operator, Intrepid Travel is leading the way in animal protection in the tourism industry and is encouraging Australians to take action to become animal friendly travellers.
World Animal Protection and BRC estimate that around 40-45 bears remain in captivity for use in the brutal blood sport of bear baiting. In March 2014, one more of these long-suffering animals was surrendered to our partners in Pakistan, the Bioresource Research Centre (BRC).
