What Skills Will I Gain As An Animal Protector?

Here are just a few of the other benefits to signing up:


You will learn more about some of the issues affecting farmed animals today. 

For example, did you know that although the production of foie gras, made by force-feeding ducks and geese, is illegal in the UK and that we still import over 200 tonnes of it into the UK every single year? 

Knowledge is power, so becoming an Animal Protector will equip you with the facts about important animal protection issues that you can use to be an effective advocate for animals.


You will receive quick and easy actions via emails to your inbox. 

These actions only take a few minutes to complete, but these tactics play a key role in a wider strategy and can add up to make a huge impact for animals.

We will give you all the information you need to complete these actions and inform you about how your critical actions are impacting animals who so desperately need our help.


As activists, sometimes it can make a world of difference to be connected with others who are passionate about the same causes as you. 

As an Animal Protector, you will be taking action alongside thousands of other dedicated volunteers, and will also have the opportunity to join us at offline events where you can meet other activists in person.

We’re excited to have you on board as we work towards critical changes for animals! If you’ve already signed up, please consider sharing our Animal Protector sign-up page with friends and family.

Big change starts small, and by sparing even just a few minutes to help animals we can use our voices to speak up for those who so often go unheard.
