Ending cruelty to Scotland's animals
We are calling on the Scottish Government to introduce legal protection for crab, lobster, octopus, squid and other species of decapod crustaceans and cephalopods. The UK Government has legally recognised these animals as sentient. Scotland must not lag behind.
Yes. The LSE report, Review of the Evidence of sentience in Cephalopod Molluscs and Decapod Crustaceans, commissioned by DEFRA concluded that decapod crustaceans and cephalopods are indeed sentient and should explicitly be included under the UK Government’s animal welfare legislation.
Your gift today will help us to push the Scottish Government to implement the protection decapod crustaceans and cephalopods deserve. Please donate what you can. Every gift has a big impact on our work. Everything we achieve is only possible thanks to supporters like you.
