As you read this, thousands of gentle sheep are trapped inside ships like this. They can't lie down without being trampled. Some can't reach food or water. Soon, these ships will turn into giant ovens, literally 'cooking' some animals alive. The Australian Government is under intense pressure to end this. Which means your voice is more powerful today than ever. Will you use it?
MILESTONE: The majority of Australian Senators have voted YES to a bill that would end the cruel sheep export trade — this is HUGE. The only thing standing in the way of this bill now becoming law is the Morrison government — and they're refusing to even let MPs debate it :( Please urge your Senator to keep this issue on the political agenda! UPDATE: Every day that live exporters continue to send animals into harm's way, the Australian Government needs to hear about it!
Can you believe animals are being exported to the middle east from Australia, in the summer?
As the embassy, have you spoken with local government officials to discuss this?
Animals are suffering horribly on live export ships, and both the public and the government have been deceived.
Nobody would import live animals, if they were aware of the unfortunate reality of this industry.

... here's a message just for you.
Hundreds of thousands of people have spoken out against live sheep export cruelty.
Shocking footage of the routine suffering of Australian sheep at sea caused massive public and political outrage. Months later, the trade is unravelling:
4th December: The live export industry has announced its own three-month ban on the sheep trade to the Middle East during the northern summer — but conceded it cannot guarantee against another mass death at sea.
31 October: The independent Moss Review into the culture and capabilities of the Department of Agriculture has been released — and the findings are damning.
10th September: The Australian Senate has passed a bill to phase out live sheep exports over a five-year period and stop trade to the Middle East during the hottest part of the year.
22nd August: Emanuel Exports — the company at the centre of the horrific live exports scandal involving the deaths of thousands of sheep from heat stress at sea — has had its licence to export animals permanently cancelled by the Federal Department of Agriculture!
