About Animals

Animals International is the global arm of Animals Australia, Australia's foremost animal advocacy organisation.

Recognised internationally for strategic public awareness campaigning, our ground-breaking investigations have spanned 16 countries — shining a spotlight on animal abuse, forcing government intervention, driving change and empowering individuals and communities to be active participants in the fight against animal cruelty.

Animals International has its roots in Australia, where for over 30 years, Animals Australia has grown to become the country’s foremost animal protection organisation. Through strategic investigations and campaigns, Animals Australia has raised the profile of animal protection in the minds of governments, corporations and individuals and is credited with lifting the conscience of the nation when it comes to Australia’s treatment of animals.

Our investigations have resulted in media coverage in dozens of countries including in Australia, throughout the Middle East and South East Asia, North Africa and within Europe. Our country-based investigators bring with them a wealth of cultural experience, local understanding as well as an inherent empathy for animals.

Animals International also collaborates with many other animal protection groups throughout the world, in order to provide animals with the strongest possible representation.
