$5m lifts animal welfare

A FIVE million dollar Animal Justice Fund (AJF) has been established by wealthy businesswoman Jan Cameron.

The fund will finance rewards from $5000 to $30,000 for the provision of information or evidence of cruelty to animals which leads to successful prosecution under state animal welfare legislation or “a significant animal welfare outcome as judged by the AJF”.

The AJF says it will promote the cause of animal welfare through strategic litigation, public awareness campaigns and the prosecution of people or businesses who commit offences against animals used in intensive farming or through commercial or recreational practices.

To be administered by Animals Australia, the AJF will conduct high profile public awareness campaigns highlighting the treatment of animals in factory farms.

It will offer rewards of up to $30,000 to industry workers for information that leads to successful prosecutions or significant animal welfare outcomes, as judged by the AJF.
