Into the Wild

On Thursday 19 May 2011 Lawyers for Animals will hold its annual law week event. Please see the attached flyer for details of Into the Wild, a forum to consider the legal plight of Australia’s wildlife, focusing on three species of particular concern: kangaroos, dingoes and possums.

Fishing

The use of commercial trawling nets is an extremely cruel means of fishing and an environmental disaster due to the impact on the ocean floor.

Though rarely acknowledged, fish suffer. Their writhing bodies and flapping gills are a desperate plea for the oxygen they breathe from water (rather than air).

Governments now understand the massive damage done to marine ecology, but there must be equal consideration for fish suffering.
