Like most Victorians, I want to see animals treated with compassion, not cruelty.

The Greens have a long track record of advocating for animals in the Victorian Parliament.

‘Since I was elected I’ve continually called for an end to duck shooting, spoken out against cruelty in the horse and greyhound racing industries, called for an end to cruel factory farming practices and fought for stronger protections for native animals.’

All animals deserve our care and respect.

I will always push the government to go further and faster on animal rights and ending cruelty, and I’ll hold them to account when they fail to do so.

Motion: Duck Hunting

I would like to make some brief comments on this motion, which the Greens will not be supporting. Our opposition to duck shooting should be well known to everyone in this place. In our entire 15 years in Parliament the Victorian Greens have been calling for the end of duck shooting...
