Animal protection is failing - but the solution is simple. We need a Minister for Animal Protection who will oversee animal cruelty laws and their enforcement.
Right now, the Minister for Agriculture, who holds the portfolio for animal protection, also represents and is in charge of promoting animal use industries. Imagine having a Minister for Mining in charge of environmental protection. There is a major conflict of interest here that needs to change.
By signing the petition below, you’ll be joining the call to move the portfolio for animal protection away from the Agriculture Minister, to a Minister for Animal Protection who will oversee animal cruelty laws and their enforcement.
