Abstract

This article comments on Seamus Brand’s article in this volume entitled ‘Australian Live Animal Export: A Comparative Examination of Viable Alternatives’. Part I considers the economic arguments that support abolishing Australia’s live animal export trade. Part II focuses on the approach to animal welfare taken in Brazil and Part III discusses the merits of an umbrella treaty. The comment concludes that Australia should follow the lead taken by New Zealand and end the export trade in live animals.
