New Zealand Is Officially Banning Live Animal Exports 10/04/2022

New Zealand has officially announced plans to ban live animal exports. The country currently only exports animals for breeding, not slaughter, and it will stop all of these on April 30, 2023. The decision comes two years after 41 crew members and 6,000 cattle died when a storm sank an export ship. Two New Zealanders were killed in the tragedy, which led to an increase in support to ban live exports in the country. Damien O’Connor, the country’s environment minister, said that the new law would protect New Zealand’s reputation as the world becomes increasingly more conscious of animal welfare. Live exports are hugely controversial due to animal welfare concerns. The vessels are often overcrowded, and the animals suffer from disease, exhaustion, and dehydration. Millions of animals, including pigs, cows, and sheep are exported each year around the world. Compassion In World Farming describes live exports as “painful, stressful and completely unacceptable.” (plantbasednews.org)

"They are not objects, or supermarket stock, or breakfast, or a coat, or a new pair of shoes. ⁣⁠⁣⁠They are individuals.⁣⁠⁣⁠They are no different to the dog you walked past on the street who made you smile, and no different to the cat who you loved growing up.⁣⁠⁣⁠They are no different. And when it comes down to their desire to live, and their desire to be free from pain, they are no different to you or I.⁣"
