June was another busy month for animal protectors all over the world. Here are just six of the incredible wins you made possible — thank you.
🐥You called out Burger King Brazil on their treatment of chickens
Our Brazil team took to the streets on the main avenue of São Paulo in Brazil to put pressure on Burger King to adhere to minimum welfare standards for chickens.
🦥You asked Groupon to stop profiting from wildlife entertainment
Our US team organised a demonstration in front of the InterContinental New York Barclay hotel, where Groupon’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer were speaking at the Baird Global Consumer, Technology and Services Conference. Although Groupon is based in Chicago, our team did not want to miss this opportunity to raise our campaign to stop Groupon promoting venues exploiting wild animals.
🐘You moved Scandinavia’s biggest travel company to introduce animal welfare guides
Our Denmark team has worked with Scandinavia’s largest travel company, Spies Group, to agree to a close collaboration, ensuring animal welfare is at the forefront of all their 400+ destinations around the globe. As result, World Animal Protection’s animal welfare guides will be an integral part of the Spies Group's overall sustainability policy.
🦠You exposed factory farming and AMR links through a documentary in Brazil
Our Brazil team launched a documentary, “Multi-resistant Bacteria: An Invisible Threat”, which focusses on the indiscriminate use of antibiotics as prophylactic measures or as growth promoters in factory farming, and how this contributes to increasing antibacterial resistance.
🌎 You asked Global leaders for a "Just Protein Transition" away from animal protein to combat climate change
Our side-event, at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Bonn, Germany, focussed on how transitioning to plant-based protein can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The UNFCCC is a meeting of governments preparing for the official COP27 in Egypt in November.
🐻 You demanded Hanoi authorities to end cruel bear bile farming
Together with our Vietnam Bear Coalition partners, Education for Nature Vietnam (ENV) and Four Paws, we have renewed fresh calls in a media briefing urging the authorities in Hanoi to take decisive action to end bear bile farming. Hanoi remains the biggest bear bile farming hotspot in Vietnam, accounting for 148 bears, or 52% of captive bears in the country.
