Animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.

Tell State Premiers to Bring in Long-Overdue Ban on Wild-Animal Circuses!

Forcing wild animals such as lions, monkeys and camels to perform absurd tricks is an archaic practice that has no place in Australia.

Animals used in circuses spend most of their lives being carted from one performance to another or held in barren temporary enclosures, and may be beaten or punished as part of the circuses' barbaric training methods.

Australian-based Lennon Bros Circus and Stardust Circus continue to exploit animals, conducting training sessions behind closed doors.

The show must not go on!

Please sign our petition asking State Premiers to ban wild-animal acts in circuses and ensure the welfare of the animals who are currently imprisoned by Lennon Bros and Stardust. Please also refuse to attend circuses that use animals, and urge your family members and friends to do the same.
