The New Zealand Animal Law Association are engaged in several ongoing projects promoting animal welfare in New Zealand (lawyers only).
From Danielle Duffield, President of the NZALA:
In terms of law reform projects, we are working on a report on the connection between domestic violence and animal cruelty, and law reform options available to address this connection. We are also doing research into egg labelling issues, following the allegations regarding Palace Poultry earlier this year. The Ministry for Primary Industries is also currently developing animal welfare regulations, and we have made submissions and attended consultation sessions with them in relation to the proposals. This is an ongoing process and we will be making further submissions, and attending further consultations, as the next set of regulations are proposed. Additionally, we hope to soon prepare a report examining factory farming and the law, and suggesting reform options.
