Take Action

Animals like crabs, lobsters & prawns (decapod crustaceans) undergo severe suffering in the food industry. They’re boiled alive, crammed into overcrowded tanks, posted live using Amazon, and more. 

Be part of animal welfare history... 

In November, an official government report was published recognising decapods as capable of experiencing pain. Following this, decapods were added to the Animal Welfare (Sentience) Act which has passed the final stages in Parliament and is now law. Although this is a great step towards their protection, we can't stop here.

Decapods are still suffering. Take action now to help:

Ask PM Rishi Sunak to Commit to Animal Welfare

The UK has elected a new Prime Minister: Rishi Sunak. His attitude to animal welfare will greatly impact how issues such as the treatment of decapods are dealt with.

Changes in Government can threaten animal welfare as new agendas are prioritised. We urgently need to ensure that the Government commit to improving animal welfare.

We’ve prepared a letter to Rishi Sunak asking him to make this commitment. Make your voice heard early by sending your letter now! It only takes a moment.

Our petition was sent to Michael Gove in 2018, but we need the numbers to keep rising so that we can keep the pressure up!
