We achieve nothing alone. Our work is used by organizations, individuals, educators, media outlets from around the world in support of their initiatives to make the world better for animals. The impact of an image is notoriously difficult to measure, but our hope remains that each of our images has the power to shape conversations and will further political, economic, and moral progress in the hands of those who use them. Below are highlights of only some of the victories our work has helped make possible.
We Animals Media collaborated with EAST in 2018 to document caged laying duck farms in Taiwan. Following EAST’s campaign, a motion was put forward in the Legislative Yuan calling on the Council of Agriculture to draft guidelines for the humane farming of ducks. The Council agreed to consider a ban on new construction of caged duck farms and revealed a five year phase-out plan. EAST are currently negotiating with the Council and working with legislators to ensure this happens.
We Animals Media’s images created the foundation for the Montreal SPCA and The Fur-Bearers largest anti-fur campaign, www.makefurhistory.com. The campaign was featured in 230 LUSH stores across North America and several stores in the UK and Hong Kong. Make Fur History resulted in widespread media attention and policy change in British Columbia, Canada. The campaign has now been picked up by other organizations and the hashtag #makefurhistory is regularly used throughout the year.
