Lebanon: Animal Welfare Legislation Press Conference
An Animal Rights Article from All-Creatures.org


Animals Lebanon on European Vegetarian and Animal News Alliance (EVANA)
March 2010

On 4 March, at the Radisson hotel, Animals Lebanon held a press conference to explain the importance of having national legislation for animal welfare and the important work being done to make sure these laws are drafted and enacted. The opening of new zoos, traveling circuses in the region, and the smuggling of endangered wildlife all highlight the desperate need for proper legislation.

No less than eight television stations covered the press conference, and the room was packed full of other journalists, NGO representatives, and friends and supporters of Animals Lebanon. This shows just how important of an issue this is to the general public, and that animal welfare is not something which can be overlooked.
