Boiled alive, crammed into overcrowded tanks, kept alive on ice, posted using Amazon... All because the UK government doesn't consider crabs and lobsters "animals" under the law. However, with your support, that could be just about to change!
Be part of animal welfare history...
The UK government are currently reviewing a new piece of legislation - the Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill, which would protect these animals as sentient beings. They are deciding right NOW whether decapods should be included under its protections. If they are, it would finally help give crabs, lobsters and other crustaceans the protection from cruelty they deserve.
We urgently need your support so the government knows that people care about this issue.
Be a voice for these animals... Ask your MP to speak out for decapod crustaceans. Please don't let these animals be 'forgotten' in the Sentience Bill!
Ask your MP to tell Zac Goldsmith, Minister of State at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to include decapod crustaceans like crabs, lobsters and crayfish in any upcoming Sentience Bill.
Use the box provided to fill in your details and send this letter to your MP. If you wish you can also amend it to add your own message of support.
Thank you for helping decapods!
