Bruce Poon Lead Candidate for Northern Metro Region Upper House


Bruce lives and works in the CBD of Melbourne. His background is in Information Technology but he is currently working full time as President of the Animal Justice Party.

He has been vegetarian or vegan for 30 years and involved in animal activism for most of that time, including research, rescue, filming and other aspects of animal protection work. Frustrated with his inability to win change on the big issues affecting animals, he now works on winning power for animals in politics.

He shares the party’s vision of a world where non-human animals are treated with compassion and respect. He has worked closely on a number of the party’s successful campaigns and will use his seat in the upper house to negotiate an end to battery cages, duck shooting and the many other areas where animals are treated without due regard to their rights as sentient beings.
