The Vegetarian/Vegan Society of Queensland received a $20,000 grant for their Vegetarian Survey project. This grant funded a survey of vegetarianism in order to establish rates of vegetarianism among Australians as well as Australian people’s attitudes to animals. The survey found 99% of Australians are against animal cruelty and find certain farming, testing and breeding practices unacceptable. It also found that 86% of Australians believe keeping egg-laying hens in cages for their entire lives is unacceptable; 80% of Australians think it’s unacceptable to test cosmetics on animals; and 56% of Australians would consider becoming vegan. The survey report concluded that the most important thing people can do to help animals is become vegan. To view the full report “A Pound of Flesh” please click on the download icon below.
