Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

This post is dedicated to the Croatian animal rights organisation, Animal Friends.

Due to the efforts of Animal Friends, the Croatian Animal Protection Act, passed on January 1, 2007 recognised the brutal nature of the fur industry and banned fur farming.

This came with a 10-year phase-out period, which meant the ban would be fully effective from January 1, 2017.

This phase out period has given fur farmers ample time to transition to another, more ethical form of business.

However, currently chinchilla breeders are attempting to exempt chinchillas from this ban. Of note, the only remaining type of fur farming in Croatia is chinchilla farming, which essentially means the fur ban would be negated.

On February 19, 2016, Croatian citizens gathered on the central square of the capital city Zagreb to make a public statement. They sat in a cage with ‘Chinchi’ to raise awareness about the miserable life of animals farmed for fur.

A recent poll showed that 3 out of 4 Croatian citizens are in support of a fur ban.

I hope compassion prevails and the fur farming ban stays!
