AIA Supports the Animals (Low Welfare Activities Abroad) Bill

We are delighted that the Animals (Low Welfare Activities Abroad) Bill passed its second reading in the House of Commons on 3rd February.

Animal Interfaith Alliance Patrons and Directors joined Duncan McNair, CEO of Save the Asian Elephant (STAE) and his team outside Number 10 Downing Street, London on 24th January, to present the world’s biggest animal species petition, containing 1.2 million signatures, to No 10. The petition demands an end to the suffering of Asian elephants in the tourist trade where they are treated with extreme brutality. 

AIA fully supports STAE’s campaign to end this torture. There can be no place for such cruelty in a civilised modern world, and certainly travel companies should not be able to promote tourism that profits from such brutality.
