You can make a difference for lambs in the wool industry

A spray anesthetic and antiseptic being applied following mulesing. Tragically, many lambs ensure this procedure with no pain relief at all.

We’ve made great progress in encouraging brands and retailers selling wool goods in Australia to commit to using non-mulesed wool. So far more than 100 companies have made a public commitment thanks to the lobbying work of our campaigners and pressure from consumers.

While many farmers have made the switch to more humane methods of controlling flystrike, or have bred sheep naturally resistant to it, many will continue to mules their sheep until the market for it dried up.

You can sign the petition to show retailers that people don’t want to buy wool that’s come from mutilated lambs.
