Ban Live Export Petition

Sign the petition and together let’s demand the major parties Ban Live Export

For years we have known of the horrific cruelty that awaits animals at their final destination, but now thanks to a brave whistle-blower and Animals Australia, there is no denying the extreme suffering these animals also endure on board the ships of the live export industry.

Footage obtained in August last year revealed the shocking reality of these lengthy sea journeys with thousands of sheep suffering from heat stress, no readily accessible food or water, sick and injured sheep left untreated, animals being thrown overboard and an estimated 2,400 sheep losing their lives.

This senseless suffering and death has been allowed to continue for years, with 566,460 sheep dying on board since 2000, and an estimated 1.5 million in the past 30 years.

Sheep are intelligent, affectionate, inquisitive, emotional beings, born into a situation they didn’t choose and wondering what they did to deserve being treated so badly. They don’t have the power to get out of these situations – but we have the power to help them – and we owe them nothing less than whatever it takes to end their pain and suffering, and create a world where they are protected from cruelty and indifference. 

The majority of Australians want to see an end to this cruelty, yet the two major parties ignore the outcry of the Australian people and continue to support it.

We need to stand together with one voice and demand that this cruelty must stop.


What can you do?

    It sickens me when I see the gross cruelty Sheep and Cattle are exposed to. Those that survive the journey are also abused and tortured. I have seen video footage of sheep being tossed into the boot of a car and cows that are battered with sledge hammers and have their eyes gouged and I could go on and on. Shame on the Australian Government who are obviously piss weak for allowing this to happen. The exporters should be made accountable and charged with gross cruelty. I thought Australia would have proper ethics but I find Australia is just as bad as those countries who do not have Animal Welfare laws. Their is no excuse. I was once proud to be an aussie but now I am not. To all those that are responsible for the hell these innocent animals are exposed to may you all rot in hell. I believe in karma and karma will catch up with you. I am so fed up with all the cruelty animals are exposed to by inhumane humans.
