Today is World Wildlife Day ! This year’s theme is centered around forests, forest species, and their ecosystems. Our Co-President, Manon, wants to celebrate forest wildlife by inviting you to sign the petition launched by AVA France to end stag-hunting 🌲
Did you know that 68% of French people consider that their Government fails to protect animals on a daily basis? Although French lawmakers recently debated and eventually adopted the bill that will ban the display of wild animals in circus and the captivity of dolphins in marine parks from 2026, and generally puts an end to animal abuse in households; we think it is time to go even further. This law must signal a clear break with past political considerations of animal welfare.
There are still many projects to implement considering that 85% of French people are opposed to intensive industrial breeding, 77% against stag-hunting, and 75% against bullfighting (according to a poll conducted by the French Institute of Public Opinion for 30 Millions d’Amis) ⚖️
Hunting is not a “hobby” like any other. Plus, outdoor shooting is the number one preventable cause of death amongst hunters themselves.
You know we love biking. So why not swop shotguns for mountain bikes instead of forbidding the latter during hunting season? 😜🚲
