Help end long distance live transport

One million farm animals are transported every day across Europe, most of them for slaughter. Live transport, especially on long distances, is a major animal welfare concern.

Animals suffer from stress, hunger, thirst, exhaustion, lack of space or rest. Scientific evidence shows that the stress of transport weakens the immune system making animals more vulnerable to diseases. In the UK, over 10,000 sheep are exported from our shores every year to an unknown destination - this cruelty must end!
