I recently updated the Australian section of Vegan Outreach’s website by adding information on where to find the best vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants across Australia. I’ve also added a page describing the suffering animals experience on factory farms and slaughterhouses in Australia and New Zealand.
I’ve noticed that a lot of people in Australia and New Zealand think that factory farming is something that doesn’t happen here, and many people think that we treat animals more humanely than in the United States. For this reason, I think it’s important to show people exactly how animals are treated here, using footage and pictures exclusively from Australia and New Zealand.
