We conducted a pilot study of lobster welfare in London. We found that most tanks were overcrowded, lacked any shelter from the light, restricted their movement, and prevented the lobsters from carrying out natural behaviours. Some of the conditions we found were really shocking. And of course, many of these lobsters were destined to be boiled alive.
In the coming months we’re doing a final push on the petition, and we have one further ask. The most successful animal welfare petitions on our host site change.org have one thing in common; they are promoted by supporters using the promote feature on the petition site:
Promoting a petition means paying a small amount of money to change.org, and in return they show the petition to more people. Every £3 will get the petition shown to 100 more animal welfare supporters. It’s a secure and established way of obtaining more signatures, and we’re pleased to see that some of you have already helped us in this way!
This is our final chance to champion the petition before we present it to the government, and we must make as loud a rallying cry as possible. As a tiny organisation with a very limited budget, we can’t make change happen without you!
