Ban octopus farming – petition
maart 17 - november 30
Octopuses are seriously smart: they can use tools and solve complex problems, and even feel pain, pleasure, joy and fear!
That’s whyscientists are outraged by plans for the world’s first octopus farm in Spain, which would see a MILLION of these mostly solitary creatures crammed into tiny tanks every year, then killed painfully by being frozen alive in icy vats to feed the food market. It’s torture on an industrial scale.
But we can stop it. Plans for the farm have been submitted to local authorities – and a massive outcry can help prevent this suffering! Add your name now and Avaaz will deliver our voices to local authorities and the EU demanding that octopus farming is banned before it starts!
