I think this is important as it becomes unfair towards people who's difference in age is possibly less than a month for some and one of them gets a whole another year on ponies. This needs to change.

  • Ban the Ivory Trade
    With the General Election coming up, Theresa May and the Conservative Party have stated in their latest (2017) manifesto that they will give a "general pledge" to "work with international organisations to protect endangered species and the marine environment." We need more than this to protect the vulnerable creatures, this country's leaders need to live up to our reputation of being a nation of animal lovers and put a total ban on the ivory trade and not bow down to pressure from their colleagues in the party like Lady Victoria Borwich who is the President of The British Antiques Dealers’ Association, and the Conservative MP for Kensington.

  • Stop Animal cruelty
    It's important to acknowledge that animals should be treated equally and should not be put through some of the horrendous things mankind do. Animals can suffer, feel pain, feel love and feel scared they are just like you an I, except we choose to treat them as though they are below us and have no rights.This is totally and utterly wrong we should be the compassionate beings that we are supposed to be, we should treat these animals with love and respect. Your desires and what you want should never be put first if it means putting something in harm and causing suffering; this is what I call selfish. You don't get to say it's worth it because all you had to do was buy it, that animal would have spent most of its life confined without freedom; freedom to be with their family, freedom to run, freedom to be an animal and then only to have its short life end. What's a life if don't get to live it ?

  • Say 'NO' to the re-introduction of Fox Hunting

  • Stop Giving Goldfish Away As Prizes on Hook A Duck Or At Any Fair Stall
    I care for the welfare of animals (no matter how small or irrelevant they seem to people). People all over the country will buy Goldfish from the fair and not care for them or do even worse like dispose of them after they realise they dont want them. This is not fair. They deserve a happy healthy life with caring owners. As for Fairground stall owners, I don't see them treating the Goldfish right, ever feeding them or making sure they're ok for that matter. All some people see Goldfish as is an object/ a prize, not an animal who needs caring for. This needs to stop.

    This is important because it is used to "train" dogs by fear and pain.

  • Stop Animal Testing
    This is important because lots of animals are being harmed most of them resulting in death and they shouldn't be. Lots of makeup brands do not test on animals and are still equally successful as those brands that still do. This just proves that there are different ways of testing cosmetics without harming animals or even involving them in any way.

  • Provide higher primates with same protection as humans
    These creatures are the nearest relatives we have and as such deserve our care and protection. The main source of harm to these animals is purely financial so it is up to us to decide, it is a choice. Provide the same protection as to humans and we start to stop the mistreatment, exploitation and deaths of animals with over 98% identical DNA to ourselves, this is a measure of our humanity to humanity!

  • £20 should not be made from palm oil
    The use of palm oil in products is causing serious environmental harm across the planet. It is linked to major deforestation in many countries, causing widespread loss of habitats, including the rainforest habitat. In fact, 27 million hectares of the earth's surface has been used for the cultivation of palm oil. It is now widely used in a range of products, and is currently in up to half of products sold in supermarkets. Flying over countries where palm oil production is concentrated is shocking. Seeing huge scars across landscapes which should be covered in rainforest is unacceptable when there are suitable alternatives. Allowing palm oil to be the substitute for tallow is not acceptable. This must be stopped. This is not the right substitute. It is unnecessary to add another demand and reason to increase palm oil production.

  • Hedgehog emoji rights
    The hedgehog population is in serious decline in th U.K, it is estimated that during the 1950s, they had a total population of 36.5 million, shockingly, that figure now stands at roughly just 1million. Having a hedgehog emoji would put theese creatures in people's minds, thinking about what they could contribute to their welfare, they shall not be forgotten about. They should not be left out of the 'emoji club', they are far too worthy and adorable!
