For the Love of Wildlife

Hunting is a key threat to wild animal populations around the world. For the Love of Wildlife wants to reduce Australia's impact on the trade of African animals by making it illegal to import and trade their body parts in Australia. We discuss their success in getting an Australian ban on the importation and sale of lion body parts from canned hunting and their work to help elephants and rhinos.

Horse falling during race

We are joined by a local campaigner from the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses, Elio Celotto, to discuss the inherent issues with horse racing and what we can do about it.  In Australia, we are days away from the Melbourne Cup, a 3200 m race where horses are often pushed to physical exhaustion or injury by being forced to race.

We speak with two activists from Melbourne, Trevor and Bess, about consistent anti-oppression. They unpack what it means and why it's important.

This show features a talk on the debate in the animal advocacy movement around “single issue campaigns” that focus on one particular product or form of animal exploitation, examples include anti-fur campaigns and advocating against the dog meat trade.

We are joined by animal advocates Beth Allan (pictured on the right above) and Brighde Kennedy who discuss their own experiences of dealing with sexism in the movement and some ways we can work to overcome this problem as a movement.

 

You can hear Beth discussing this issue at the recent Community As Activism event. The session is on Transformative Justice and #MeToo, featuring Beth as well as Jess Ison and Anne-lise Ah-fat: https://archive.org/details/MeTooTJ

FoS presenters recently gave a talk at the Students of Sustainability Conference 2018 called 'Environmental Liberation Through Animal LIberation'. We highlight some of the key points from that talk by covering the connections between animal and environmental movements, including exploring the environmental impact of animal agriculture. You can see the associated PowerPoint presentation for some references and visuals on the topic.
