Circuses in Wales

If you agree with us that there is no place for the use of wild animals in circuses in a modern Wales, you’re not alone! 74 percent of the public in Wales support a ban on wild animals performing in circuses in Wales*.


Take action for circus animals

The Welsh Government has announced a consultation looking at what to do next. This will include the possible licensing of Mobile Animal Exhibits (MAEs). The detail will be crucial, but it could be a positive step forward for the welfare of the animals in these exhibits given they are currently largely unregulated.


However, we must be crystal clear that only a ban on wild animals in circuses is acceptable. If you agree, and haven’t yet signed our petition calling for a ban, please sign below!

 

*All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from YouGov Plc. Total sample size was 1,036 adults. Fieldwork was undertaken between 19th–22nd August 2015. The survey was carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all Welsh adults (aged 18+)


What have we done already?

Last year our petition to the National Assembly for Wales gathered almost 8,000 signatures. In town, villages and cities right across Wales our friends, family and neighbours were shocked that the use of wild animals in circuses was still legal.
