My previously stated hypothesis; is the animal export industry conforming to the expectations of the Australian community? It appears that during present times that it hasn’t reached the point were it meets the expectations of Australians. There is a lot of improvement that is required to be done so that in the near future it reaches that standard which is
Due to their hard work, very low pay and inhumane work conditions a lot of money was made for Queensland farms and this in turn made money for Australia. In return for their hard work Australia sent the South Sea islanders back home when they had finished their work contracts with hardly a thank you. Unfortunately the South Sea Islanders received very little recognition for their work at the time that they were in Australia. It has only been in recent times that Australia has recognised their contribution. Many South Sea Islanders died while in Australia and most were not given the respect in death that they had earnt.
Some things in life are both good and bad, it just depends how a person views
We live in a world where marine life eat our trash, while at the same time, people go days without having something to eat. It is a sad but devastating reality. Everyday the world’s oceans continue to become a universal junkyard. Marine pollution continues to grow exponentially on the one resource that separates us from the rest of the universe. On land, there is a different problem. Hundreds of thousands of people go to bed every night without food. We not only want to fix both of these issues, we need to. BlueGold is our non-profit organization that helps homeless people living near coastal cities receive food while collecting trash from the beach. Our goal is to not only clean up the ocean, but also help feed those who go hungry due to monetary incapabilities. Thus, we are able to tackle two ongoing problems in the world today, hunger and marine pollution.
Showing livestock has many benefits people don’t realize. Have you ever thought about them? What an individual can gain, learn, and/or experience? Many people often feel showing livestock falls under two categories. One, it is just a waste of thousands of dollars, or two, we get meat from livestock.
Also, in the article, "The Globalization of Animal Welfare”, it explains that, “the average person in an industrialized country still consumes far more animal products each year: 181 pounds of meat, 459 pounds of dairy, and 29 pounds of eggs, as compared with 68 pounds of meat, 110 pounds of dairy, and 18 pounds of eggs for each person in the developing world” (Park). An abundance of animals have to be slaughtered because people are “dependent” on meat. Farmers are not doing there job to their full potential. Farmers only care about quantity, if they are producing enough, rather than quality, if the
A WPA report in October 2010 showed that sheep processed domestically for meat are worth 20% more to the Australian economy compared to those that are exported live. The same report showed that another benefit of transitioning to a chilled meat trade is that the utilization of abattoirs currently operating at just 59% could contribute $204 million to the economy each year and create 1300 jobs. The shift away from live animal exports is already showing great promise with the Australian Government’s Department of Agriculture stating that the value of meat exports for 2014 was worth $10 billion more compared to that of live exports. A phase-out of the cruel live export trade will not only have long term benefits for the Australian economy, it will prevent further support for an industry that every major international animal welfare organisation condemns as cruel and unacceptable.
They are silent killers, living in backyards, parks and neighborhoods all across the world. They specialize in crowding out, choking, and killing native residents to the point where they rule over the land. The prevention and elimination of these species cost billions of dollars to the United States each year. Our commercial, agricultural, and recreational activities depend on the execution of these visitors. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, these killers go by a less potent name: invasive species.
Food and travel have played a large part in Australian culture influenced by many other countries customs and beliefs. It has become more apparent within since the late 1900’s as many different cuisines and food become available to the Australian public as takeaways and packaged food. Travel has also become very popular with the interaction of people travelling international between Australia and the rest of the world. As a result Australian multiculturalism through the mediums of food and travel has evolved significantly since the
Imagine a day in the life of a common farm animal. Far from the peaceful grazing life one would envision, the livestock of today endure horrific conditions - from suffering painful diseases to being separated from their mothers at too young of an age. Not only are these conditions harmful to the animals, the food produced by them is unnecessary to humanity’s well-being and can even be damaging to society’s overall health. Since the definition of ethics is having well-founded standards of right and wrong, this process of producing meat for our consumption is unethical.
Is hunting for sport (not food or survival) morally justified? At one point of time hunting was very crucial for survival but now some would say hunting is nothing more than a violent form of recreation that the majority of hunters do not need for subsistence. Those who support hunting may say it does more good than bad for economic reasons. Outsiders are more concerned with the pain and suffering and loss of life endured by the animals. A study conducted by a Yale professor concluded that 60% of Americans disapprove of sport hunting and about one-third of Americans favor a total ban on hunting (Achor 138). I believe hunting animals for sport and not for survival is completely wrong and should be illegal.
Alongside to the economic benefits that meat brings into our society, meat industries also help people from the lower class. Without meat industries, people from the lower class would eventually starve out as their easy and cheap access to food would be taken away from them. Simply eating small grains and vegetables would no longer provide the same amount of nutrients in their diet as previously mentioned in the paragraph above. It is for this reason that eating meat is ethical as taking it away would cause detrimental effects to our
There are many varying opinions on the use of farrowing crates in the practice of raising swine. A farrowing crate is a penning system, which has an area for the sow and an area for her piglets. While the use of these crates can be controversial, I believe they are necessary for the safety of piglets. These crates are to reduce the number of deaths in piglets caused by crushing. A sow is much heavier than her tiny piglets, and many times by mistake she will crush her young. Even with the use of these crates 52% of piglet deaths are still caused by crushing. The opposing side typically argues about how sows are treated as “machines” who are bred litter after litter and that these crates are torture for them. Many don’t realize that without the
The first attempt and success to climb Mt. Everest occured in 1953. Since then, almost 4,000 people have been able to scale the mountain, but over 230 people have not been able to climb it successfully. There is a chance of accident or death when climbing this mountain or any dangerous activity. All people should should have the right to rescue services even if they knowingly put themselves at risk because there is always a chance of an accident happening, rangers are there to save people in danger, and there are rescue vehicles being produced to be used in case of an emergency.
The amount of plastic products that ended up in the ocean as of 2015 are quite high. How high you may ask yourself? No not 1 million but 9 million tons of plastic waste laid in the ocean as of 2015. Who could be responsible for most of this plastic in the ocean? Surprisingly its china, they are responsible for 2.4 million tons per year. That 's 30 percent of the global total. The top countries most responsible for the plastic pollution issue are as following, China, The Philippines, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Egypt, Malaysia, Nigeria, and Bangladesh.What are we gonna do about it? Switch bag materials or don 't even provide bags just make the people bring their own bags and then they can continue to reuse them and then we won 't have the issue of plastic ending up in the ocean. Innocent animals we haven 't even discovered yet are dying because people can 't walk 10 feet to a trash can. If you could save your mothers life by walking a couple yards to the nearest trash can would you? Of course you would! Dumping plastics into our oceans is a huge problem for our environment and the people that live in it.
