Learn About Our Campaigns
Animal testing is outmoded because, unlike human biology-based test methods, animals are unreliable predictors of human response, delaying treatments and cures to patients and driving up drug costs.
We are working to end mink farming for fur — an industry that causes immense suffering to mink and poses major animal and human health threats because of the unique susceptibility of factory-farmed mink to SARS-CoV-2.
Kangaroos Are Not Shoes
Nike has a supply chain that drives the killing of millions of wild kangaroos every year in Australia — the largest commercial wildlife slaughter in the world. We are working to encourage them to use entirely human-made materials in all their soccer cleats and other athletic shoes.
Many food retailers, including McDonald’s, Costco, and Safeway, have committed to phase out their purchasing of pork and eggs from farms that rely on these extreme confinement methods. Some of those policies have taken effect, while others are set to do so in the years ahead.
Dunking the Milk Mandate in Schools
We are working to end an archaic and wasteful milk mandate in the National School Lunch Program and to give kids a plant-based choice that delivers comparable nutrition without making them ill.
We are working to stop the assaults on wolves across their range in the United States, including in Idaho, Montana, and Wisconsin where the states have initiated particularly ruthless killing plans for wolves.
Elephants in Crisis
Thailand advertises the elephant as an icon, central to its culture and business. But after Thailand restricted logging, more than 3,000 captive elephants were reemployed in tourist enterprises — with inhumane training techniques, unending labor and abandonment or chaining during economic downturns.
Banning Greyhound Racing
Greyhounds get injured or die at the tracks they continue to streak around the few ovals where this spectator sport continues. We're working to make sure no private business is involved with this kind of inhumane enterprise.
