Kangaroos

Kangaroos are the victims of the largest land based wildlife slaughter in the world.  Millions of kangaroos are killed every year for commercial purposes or to appease farmers who see kangaroos as a threat to farming livelihoods by competing for resources.  We are working to stop the kangaroo killing industry and end the demonising of one of Australia’s most unique animals. 

Mulesing

Mulesing is the removal of strips of wool-bearing skin from around the breech (buttocks) of a sheep to prevent the parasitic infection flystrike (myiasis). The Animal Justice Party is working to ban mulesing with a five year phase out giving farmers time to breed the wrinkles out of their flock.  In the mean time we are pushing for manditory pain relief both before and after the painful procedure.
