Currently in relation to animals, the law is generally inadequate in both its provisions and enforcement. In many instances, policy and legislation fail to reflect our complex relationship with our fellow earthlings and provide them and us with the protection we all deserve!
Despite this, our courts have made a number of positive statements regarding animals and their status, indicating that they are sentient beings and elevating the welfare and protection of non-human animals to a constitutional concern.
This together with the increased public support for and emphasis on animal welfare, presents an opportunity to reform the law. Animals, like other vulnerable beings, need lawyers.
We work through three main pillars: Animal Wellbeing; Law and Social Justice.
We focus on a few key areas that we believe will bring about the most change. These focus areas include:
1. Legislative and Policy Reform
2. Litigation and Legal Services
3. Education and Research
In the future:
In line with our Mission and Vision, we strive to provide excellent work that is useful and reliable for relevant stakeholders.
