Explosive new footage and images supplied to Kindness Project by Farm Transparency Project reveal the appalling conditions in which iconic Australian saltwater crocodiles are being forced to live, on farms owned by luxury French fashion house Hermès.
Humans’ relationship with animals is fundamentally fractured, we view animals for what they can give us and often fail to recognize their inherent will and right to exist in this world for their own unique, individual purposes.
The United Nations has identified animal agriculture as ‘one of the most significant contributors to today’s most serious environmental problems’, including climate change, widespread land clearing, species extinction, high use of freshwater, rainforest destruction, air and water pollution and loss of habitat.
The animal industrial complex (AIC) is not only harmful to animals, the environment and humans directly involved with farming or living in farming communities; many people may not realise that the AIC can impact their health from the other side of the world.
Though the most obvious harm caused by the animal industrial complex (AIC) is that caused directly to the animals raised for their food and fibre, humans also suffer immensely due to this system; from workers in the industry, to the communities surrounding CAFOs.
