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.
The animal industrial complex (AIC) refers to the systemic and institutionalised exploitation of animals for financial gain. This differs to individual acts of cruelty in the it refers to a system that normalises animal abuse. Though the most obvious harm caused by the AIC is that done to the animals raised directly for food, clothing, entertainment and testing - it is essential that we identify the clear intersections between human and environmental rights that exist within this exploitative system. To effectively dismantle the AIC we must advocate for all those it harms, human, non-human animals and the planet alike.
