This week we’re celebrating this incredible decision from the International Whaling Commission (IWC). Lost and abandoned fishing gear – ghost gear – is the biggest threat to whales and other marine life
Transitioning our sheep and cattle industries to an exclusively chilled and frozen meat trade would ensure that animals are slaughtered and processed in Australia under our regulations and protected from arduous sea voyages and inhumane slaughter overseas.
In 1987, Jan and Pete Bevington set up Hillswick Wildlife Sanctuary – working closely with the local community, fishermen and vets – to rescue seals, otters, whales and dolphins in difficulty on the islands’ rugged and hostile coastline.
With only four vets in the entire country and an overwhelming population of stray dogs, the welfare situation is serious. We're working towards humane solutions to the issues that cause fear, misunderstanding and a divide between a community and their dogs.
