Factory farming causes the most suffering to the largest number of animals in Australia.
Animals are sentient beings with their own rich, complex emotional and social lives. Like us, they feel joy and pain. And, like us, they want to be safe from harm and cruelty. Through science-based research, law and education, Voiceless lifts the veil of secrecy on legalised animal cruelty to protect animals from human-induced suffering.
Farmed animals are conscious beings with rich experiences of the world. They suffer from pain, feel emotions and build strong relationships.
Australia exports over three million live animals every year. Many are slaughtered in countries without adequate protections against cruelty.
Ag-gag laws operate to hide the truth about how animals are raised on factory farms by silencing advocates and stifling transparency.
Voiceless is proud to announce the launch of the Voiceless Animal Cruelty Index (VACI).
The VACI is a new and exciting global education resource and the first interactive Index to evaluate and rank countries according to farm animal cruelty. The VACI is grounded in research and data analysing the nature, extent and intensity of cruelty associated with farm animal production and consumption. Fifty countries have been evaluated, accounting for almost 80% of the world's farm animal production.
