New Zealand depends on its reputation for high standards of animal welfare. However, like the nation’s ‘100% Pure’ brand, this reputation is more aspiration than substance, as there are holes in the regulatory system, little enforcement and a serious lack of funding for animals. You can turn the negatives into positives for the millions of New Zealand animals: in the wild, in the lab, in entertainment, and on the farm.
