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.

The good news of the week is that on 29 NOVEMBER 2016, fur farming in JAPAN came to an end.japanThis was not entirely a compassionate decision but also one to protect the environment.

Since implementation of the Japanese Invasive Alien Species Act in 2006 it became illegal to build new mink fur farms in Japan.

An unlicensed fur farm in Niigata had received multiple warnings from the Ministry of Environment for violating both the Invasive Alien Species Act and the Act on Welfare and Management of Animals. In 2015, after observing serious welfare issues at this fur farm and spotting escaped mink, Animal Rights Center Japan again reported the unlicensed illegal activity of the farm.

After receiving another warning, the farmer decided that the farm was no longer economically viable and therefore closed.

Given that this was Japan’s last remaining fur farm, Japan joins a growing number of countries that are leaving fur farming behind.
