🐷 You alerted people in India about antimicrobial resistance and its impacts on people and animals
Our India office conducted a live show on Facebook to make people aware about the antimicrobial resistance and its impacts on people, animals, and the environment. Alongside professionals, we linked the usage of 75% of the global antibiotics in animals with its impact on people and the environment.
🐍 With your support, we joined a coalition to tackle animal cruelty on social media

🐘 You convinced a zoo in Canada to permanently end elephant rides
After years of education campaigns, direct corporate outreach, pushing for policy change and active media engagement, we are thrilled that African Lion Safari Zoo has permanently ended elephant rides.
We will continue to urge the federal and provincial governments in Canada to ban the use of wild animals for rides, circus-style shows and selfies at all zoos.
🦁 You called out South Africa to protect lions in captivity
Following the South African government’s announcement that they would put an immediate halt to lion domestication and commercial exploitation, we joined six other non-governmental organisations to propose our New Deal for wildlife intervention in South Africa.
We provided evidence to illustrate that public concerns and discomfort about the ethics of trophy hunting have intensified in recent years, and that there are also specific concerns over the negative consequences of trophy hunting on species populations, biodiversity, and wildlife conservation.
🐵 You exposed Ethiopian Airlines’ role in cruel global wildlife trade
We have investigated the aviation industry’s role in wildlife transportation in West Africa. We discovered Ethiopian Airlines, the largest aviation group on the continent, is a major culprit for commercially shipping live wild animals around the world for luxury use as exotic pets.
