Striving to make a difference in our world

Dawn Lowe's Presentation

Dawn Lowe from Animals Angels Australia, talks at the Perth Advocates for the Earth Inc fundraising and educational forum titled, "Can We Make A Difference?" on the 24th August 2013.

100% of funds raised ($6,150) were donated to the Barristers Animal Welfare Panel to help them continue their work in improving animal welfare legislation in Australia and beyond.

Animals Angels is an international organisation committed to the improvement and advancement of animal welfare, with the focus on improving conditions in the transportation and handling of animals used in farming.

We work primarily in the field, visiting saleyards throughout Australia as well as attending ports from where live animals are exported on ships to overseas destinations for slaughter. Western Australia presents huge challenges in the matter of distances between farm and saleyard and Fremantle is the largest live export port for Australian sheep. Although there is legislation, Regulations and Codes of Practise for animal welfare, for it to be effective, there must be consistent monitoring of industry compliance. Animals Angels work closely and collaboratively with government and industry to bring about the best animal welfare outcomes.

With a thorough understanding of the legislation and codes and how the industry works, we are able to accurately monitor, record, report and substantiate breaches and events of non-compliance in saleyards, transport and portside in order to improve industry standards and correct improper procedures.
