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.
And now that we have secured an Inquiry into animals in “entertainment”, you can make your voice heard through the halls of parliament too!
Together we need to make sure that the Inquiry Committee gets to hear what these animals face from their lifetime in captivity.
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.
Together we can tell 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.
