Lawrence is married and has lived in inner Melbourne for many years. He is a graduate of La Trobe and Melbourne universities and has been an animal advocate for over 20 years. He has led several high profile campaigns on jumps racing, steel-jawed and glue board traps, flying fox conservation, cat sterilisation and unsafe backyard fruit tree netting. He served as an office bearer with Animal Liberation and was president of the Humane Society for Animal Welfare and the Victorian Advocates for Animals.
Lawrence calls for zero blood alcohol laws for persons handling a firearm, a `cruelty offenders` register and the reintroduction of “with hard labour” as an option for sentencing magistrates for those convicted of serious crimes including those against animals. He wants the abolition of wildlife unsafe fruit tree netting and duck shooting and the increased planting of Australian heritage native trees in our parks and gardens.
