Watch to see why animals need you on 14th June

There’s less than one month to go until Stop Live Transport International Awareness Day – and the animals subjected to this horrific trade need your voice now more than ever.

You may have already read the report of our latest investigation, trailing one of the many exhausting journeys that unweaned calves have recently made from Scotland to the Continent.

Please – watch and share the new investigation film, which shows why the world must come together on 14th June to Stop Live Transport.


Filmed over three days, this investigation reveals the cramped and gruelling conditions animals are forced to endure during UK live exports. Hearing the calves cry out, and watching them try to suckle and bite the bars of their truck, is heartbreaking.

Sadly, UK live exports are just one terrible example of the cruelty inflicted on animals, worldwide, by long distance live transport. That is why it is crucial we come together to grow the global movement to end this trade.

If you haven’t already done so, please join campaigners around the worldwho are getting ready to take action this Stop Live Transport International Awareness Day!
