If you are a law student with a concern for the plight of non-human animals in Australia, you may be interested in becoming a Voiceless Animal Advocate. Check out their website for more info: http://www.vaa.org.au/
Speaking of Voiceless, this organisation has recently released it’s ground-breaking expose of Australian broiler chicken (meat chicken) factories. Over 450 million birds each year spend their short lives confined in these factories which are often mistaken for "farms". You can read the report, From Nest to Nugget, here: http://www.voiceless.org.au/The_Issues/Misc/From_Nest_to_Nugget.html
While you’re there, check out the Consumer Action Sheet for tips on how YOU can make a difference to the lives of these animals!
Once again, CONGRATULATIONS to Shatha, Lakshinee and Kathleen!!! We are so proud of you!!!
