Millions of farm animals are suffering in Australia’s live export industry. These animals can spend anywhere from 11-25 days at sea, during which they are forced to lie down in their own urine and faeces, and endure extreme temperatures.

Live export is an inherently cruel industry – there are alternatives. Please help us end the suffering.
