About our cause

Our cause is Live export. Every year millions of Australian animals are sent to slaughter in countries with no laws to protect them from cruelty. Animals Australia's investigations have revealed the routine brutality inflicted upon animals in destination countries, resulting in a suspension of the live trade to Indonesia and Egypt, and intense public pressure for a complete ban. Your support will help ensure Animals Australia can continue to lobby governments and send investigators to where animals need them most, to bring about an end to live exports. Learn more.

A personal message from Animals Australia:
Our target: $ 6,250
So far we've raised: $ 5,310

We're raising money to fund critical investigations and public awareness campaigns. Without Animals Australia' investigations, the cruelty of live exports to Indonesia and other countries would continue out of sight and out of mind.

Millions of Australians awoke to the cruelty of this trade after footage from Animals Australia's Indonesian live export investigation aired on Four Corners.

Animals... Australia's investigations have already resulted in a permanent ban on live sheep exports to Egypt; the closure of a number of atrocious slaughterhouses in Jordan and Indonesia; a suspension of the trade to Indonesia; and intense public pressure to end the trade. Fear of where our cameras will be aimed next has also led to improvements in the way animals are handled in some destinations.

The public outcry that followed forced the Gillard Government to introduce new regulatory controls which will significantly impact on the operation of the trade.  But the failure of these regulations to mandate that Australian animals must be stunned unconscious before they are slaughtered means that animals will continue to suffer prolonged and agonising deaths in importing countries.  As a result, Animals Australia's critical investigations, which have brought this trade to the brink of extinction, must continue.
