Across NSW, dolphins, lions, monkeys and many other animals are still being held captive, traumatised and made to perform for human audiences. This animal abuse must end.
Holding wild animals captive in shocking conditions and forcing them to carry out unnatural an inane tricks is cruel and inhumane.
These animals who suffer a lifetime of stress, boredom, frustration and lethargy to provide a dwindling number of people with a few minutes of “entertainment”. There is no educational value in seeing an animal being forced into a tiny space to perform for baying crowds.
Allowing this animal abuse to go ahead simply teaches dominance and disrespect.
Sign our urgent petition demanding these animals be retired and allowed live out the rest of their lives in sanctuaries, away from the public eye, and that legislation ban the use of animals in entertainment.
By filling out your details on this form, you’ll be adding your voice to hundreds of others across NSW demanding change.
The majority of the NSW community finds the exploitation of animals for "entertainment" completely unacceptable. Over 40 councils across Australia have banned the use of circus animals, and we only have one remaining dolphinarium.
But what we need is a statewide ban. No loopholes, so no more suffering animals can slip through the cracks.
With your help we’ve already passed the first hurdle in achieving freedom for these animals by securing an inquiry into exotic animals used in “entertainment” where our MP Emma Hurst will serve as Deputy Chair.
Together we are telling our state government that the time is now - they must commit to ending the use of animals in “entertainment” and retire working animals to sanctuaries.
