This presentation will examine recent changes in the regulation of wildlife in NSW and the ACT. The ADO will explore why these changes make it easier to harm and harder to defend wild animals, and how the Eastern Grey Kangaroo is the main target of the new measures.

Wednesday, 26 April at 6.30pm

ALACT are having a second cake stall to raise funds for the animals during the inaugural Vegan Day Out! From 10am until sold out. All money is put back into campaigning for, and supporting, the animals. So bring a Tupperware container and stock up on incredible, mouth-watering vegan goodies while raising funds for vegan education and the freedom of animals everywhere.
Bakers, once again, we need your scrumptious creations to make this a success! There are so many eager people just waiting to try your ware! Please bring them on the morning (if you need other arrangements please let us know and we will see what we can do). Add a list of ingredients with your delights.
We also need volunteers to help with the stall – even if it is only for half an hour on your way around the Vegan Day Out. Come down and enjoy the day – swing past the cake stall as you make your way around the brand new Vegan Day Out!

Join us for a weekend-long celebration of everything vegan!
On Saturday 29 & Sunday 30 April, local cafes and businesses will be offering vegan themed specials. We’re talking meal deals, two for ones, free coffees, food samplings, discounted vegan groceries, wine tastings and so much more.
Here’s how it works:
Collect your free Vegan Day Out map from the Cruelty Free Shop (Shop 3, 24 Mort Street, Braddon) on Saturday 29 (9am-6pm) or Sunday 30 (10am-5pm) April. This will include the vouchers to use for special offers at participating outlets. You’ll need to show this at each participating business to claim your discount or special offer.
At the Cruelty Free Shop, we’ll have storewide discounts on hundreds of items and special offers plus free food tastings all weekend long.
Please note: as hundreds of products in store will be discounted already, no further discounts will be available over the weekend (e.g. Vegancard, Vegan Society membership etc.).
If you’ve been before, you’ll know why we’re so excited. If this is your first VDO, you’re in for a treat!
Make sure to invite your friends to this event page! Let’s make this bigger and better than ever!

Vegan Leafleting at the Million Paws Walk
Many of those who care about dogs and cats don’t realise that other animals are just as sentient, intelligent and emotional as the animals we share our homes with. ALACT will be at the Million Paws Walk at Lake Burley Griffin to highlight the issues faced by animals used for food. We need lots of volunteers to help hand out vegan flyers- with the option of dressing up in one of a fabulous animal costumes!
Further details will be shared closer to the time.
