The exploitative rodeo season is on now and involves bulls, steers. calves and horses being forced to endure stress, pain and suffering for what some call entertainment. Many animals are injured and some killed as a result of these events.
We are continuing our call for a ban on all rodeos in Tasmania and you can help. Find out more about Tasmanian rodeos and about what you can do to end this abuse.

End Native Wildlife Killing
The Tasmanian Goverment sanctioned killing seasons on native ducks, Brown Quail and Short-tailed Shearwaters has ended for another year. Unless we can convince the Government that public opinion is against these brutal slaughter they will happen again next year. Governments in other states have stopped or never allowed the killing. It is now time for Tasmania to follow that lead.
Please write to Minister Brian Wightman or your local MP and tell them that you want this killing to end. If you need help with what to say, or need an address, please contact us. See our Campaigns page for more information on duck and shearwater killing.
