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 recognise their inherent will and right to exist in this world for their own unique, individual purposes. Whether it be that we view them as food to eat, performers to entertain us, subjects to be tested on, materials to clothe us, companions to keep us from loneliness or pests to be eradicated, the value of animals is seemingly always dictated by how humans view them and not by who they are. In a kinder world, we would recognise that despite any differences there may be between us [human animals] and them [non-human animals], we are just the same in all the ways that are important.
