Australia's Law & Policy Submissions

Our work to improve animal welfare laws in Australia


The most effective way to protect animals over the long term is to improve legal frameworks. Australia is a nation of animal lovers — citizens have long demanded for the better protection of animal welfare. Our work in Australia attempts to achieve this goal by means of submitting open letters and policy submissions at the federal and state levels, and through public education to the general public.
