Help end live export
Australian sheep need your URGENT help
FAR is lodging a submission in response to the Australian government’s is regulatory review of the live export of sheep to the Middle East in the hottest part of the year, known as the Northern Hemisphere Summer.
But we need your help.
To voice your concerns alongside ours and to strengthen our cause, we strongly encourage you to write a submission before 28 January 2021 too!
You may recall the horrific footage of sheep boiling alive the Awassi Express on 60 Minutes in 2018, which triggered the government to impose a prohibition in 2020 on the live export of sheep from 01 June to 14 September… well, this prohibition is now at risk with an overall reduction in the prohibition dates.
While the government supports a prohibition generally, an overall reduction in prohibition dates means that more Australian sheep could be sent to the Middle East at the hottest time of the year.
We cannot let the government or the live export industry back-flip on this. We cannot let them send sheep, like our very own Ethel and Starr, on long-haul sea voyages in the height of the Northern Summer, at risk of heat stress, over-crowding and horror.
Pleas lodge a brief submission in your own words before 28 January 2022 to let the government know that we want an END to live export and that any reduction in the prohibition dates is cruel!
