Key commitments World Animal Protection wants to see from the next government 

Whichever party forms the next government, we want to see them take action to stop wild animals being cruelly exploited as commodities by the global systems that profit from it. We also want to see the UK commit to transforming our food system, to ensure farmed animals live good lives at the heart of a humane and sustainable food system.

We eagerly anticipate other party’s commitments to animals.
