Sign our Petition and let’s make exotic animals in circuses history!
In NSW it is still legal for exotic animals like lions and monkeys to be subjected to lives of psychological distress, anxiety, stress and boredom as part of travelling circuses.
The Animal Justice Party currently has a bill in the NSW Legislative Council to ban the use of exotic animals in circuses in NSW.
We need you to add your voice to this petition and tell the politicians of NSW that we, the people, do not want to see exotic animals in circuses in our State.
We are lagging behind the rest of the world. In total 48 countries have already banned the use of exotic animals in circuses, countries including the UK, Portugal, Italy and regions like New York and California. In Australia the ACT instituted a ban way back in 1992 and we have 45 councils that have already banned the use of exotic animals on council land.
The Animal Justice Party’s bill will establish a state-wide ban, enshrined in legislation, and will ban exotic animals from performing in circuses on either public or private land.
