Nepal must stop inhumane sacrificial slaughter!

+Compassion in World Farming and Animal Welfare Network Nepal (AWNN) are raising awareness about the issue and putting pressure on the Nepalese Government to to end the inhumane treatment of animals at the Gadhimai Festival in Nepal. Up to 250,000 farm animals were inhumanely slaughtered at the last ‘Gadhimai’ which took place in 2009 – this November the slaughter is set to take place all over again

Governments, CITES and NGOs including Eurogroup and some of our member organisations are attending a Wildlife Trafficking Conference organised by the European Commission today. Follow the link for more details: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/cites/trafficking_en.htm
 
Our fight against wildlife trafficking Wildlife trafficking threatens biodiversity, it damages the potential for human development and it seriously undermines peace, security and good governance. It is one of the most lucrative international criminal activities, and it is often closely linked to the financing of conflicts.

Today we have amongst us experts from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Development Cooperation, Justice, Home Affairs and Environment from almost all the EU Member States. We will review the existing policies and measures at EU level so as to enable the EU to react more effectively to the current crisis situation.

Follow the conference live now here https://scic.ec.europa.eu/streaming/index.php?es=2&sessionno=4cef5b5e6ff1b3445db4c013f1d452e0

Our friends at the +Protection mondiale des animaux de ferme (PMAF) launched a campaign to promote the use of free-range eggs in processed products and the welfare of laying hens more generally. 

The campaign is meant to particularly put pressure on retailer Bénédicta, one of the (three) leaders on the French mayonnaise market, which still uses eggs from hens kept in cages.

Everyone is invited to take part in this campaign by taking selfie in front of a mayonnaise section with thumb down or a funny face and share it on social networks with hashtag #selfiewonderpoule

This clip from the documentary film ‘Samsara’ gives an overview of our current food production and eating practices.

Unless we do something now, we face Farmageddon – a future of rubbish food, trashed lands, surging disease and growing world hunger.

Big day today for wildlife at the heart of EU! 

Our friends at +International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) are joining Belgian's Deputy Prime Minister in an event to destroy national stockpiles of confiscated ivory.

Countries across the globe, including China, U.S. and France have destroyed ivory to raise awareness to the unprecedented slaughter of elephants in recent years. It's estimated one elephant is killed every 15 minutes to fuel the illegal ivory trade.

For more details follow #BEivorycrush on social media and visit http://www.ifaw.org/european-union/news/belgium-crush-ivory-response-global-elephant-crisis
