ANIMALS HAVE FEELINGS TOO: TAKE ACTION

 
Born Free believes that all wild animals, whether living in captivity or in the wild, should be treated with compassion and respect.
 

In under 100 days time, the UK’s transition period for leaving the European Union will end. Unless the government acts quickly, the recognition of animal sentience – that animals have feelings and emotions – which is enshrined in EU treaties, will be lost from UK law.

A legal recognition that animals experience feelings and emotions isn’t just a nice thing to have. A law could ensure UK policymakers take animal welfare impacts into full account when setting legislation and policy, and create an independent oversight body to make sure they do.  

You can help by sending a pre-written email to the Secretary of State for the Environment, George Eustice MP, to call on the UK government to recognise that animals have feeling too, and to support the recognition of animal sentience in UK law.
