A Poultry Place is home to hundreds of rescued birds at any given time (and a few mammals too), and has run by just one very dedicated Human for the last 16 years. Watch the founder’s TEDx talk on Youtube for further insight into the story behind this sanctuary below! And click here to read A Poultry Places Newsletters!

Animal Liberation ACT’s protest to oppose the kangaroo killing in Canberra was held in the City from 4.30 – 6 on Wednesday May 31.
The aim of the protest was to bring the ongoing atrocities of the kangaroo kill in Canberra to the public, and to raise awareness about the significant acts of violence being perpetrated on an iconic and gentle native animal and their young.

Vegan ACT thanks all those who volunteered for the Little Oak Sanctuary Working Bee this weekend! With your help we were able to help make a start on the new poultry run which will soon house many more birds in need.
We hope you awesome vollies had a rewarding day and you enjoyed meeting the animals and the delicious chicken-free lunch we shared!
For all interested, keep an eye out for the next Vegan ACT sanctuary working bee here 💚🐔🐤
May is International Respect for Chickens Month!
To educate and raise awareness about these beautiful and intelligant birds Vegan ACT and Animal Liberation ACT reached out to the public with footage from chicken and egg industries in Australia and offering “egg free” treats for those who stop by to view and chat.
Here is the video shown on the night: http://www.animal-lib.org.au/campaigns/animals-for-food/

Thank you to everyone that participated and opened the minds of those that stopped by the event. 53 cities partipated this year united to bring to light the truth about the way animals are exploited all over the world and promote a life of compassion and peace.
And a huge thank you to Adrian and Tina from Red Gadget Films for filming/photographing and putting this awesome video together!
Previously (in 2016), 37 cities all joined together on one day to open the eyes and change the hearts of so many just through a connection, see video below.
On Saturday 29 & Sunday 30 April, local cafes and businesses offered vegan themed specials. We’re talking meal deals, two for ones, free coffees, food samplings, discounted vegan groceries, wine tastings and so much more. Click on the event page above to read the goss. You can also listen to a clip (about 9 mins) of Vegan ACT’s own, Michelle Swann, talking about the day on ABC Radio below
or click here to hear the full show (Michelle begins at the 23 min mark).
We were blown away by the response from the Canberra vegan community with over 100 participants. Your compassion, creativity and commitment was a force to be reckoned with.
We just know many members of the public went home with their complacency challenged and new possibilities awoken, so thank you! And thank you to everyone whose support we had from home and afar.
Thank you to our speakers, local heroes for the animals: Carolyn Drew, Bede Carmody and Tara Ward.
Thank you to all the helpers on the day and in the lead up who made it happen, too many to name! You are all wonderful!
Thank you to all the wonderful people who took photos on the day: Reeni, Tara, Jyoti and more. And of course to Gareth who took the photos we share now (and who is always behind the scenes helping make things happen!).
We can’t wait to do it all again next year, and then we will look back reflect on all the leaps forward we have made as a community in that time.
So let’s do it – let’s push things forward, for the animals!
