Australia's only political party dedicated to protecting all animals
The Animal Justice Party (AJP) was formed in response to the growing number of Australians who feel strongly that much more needs to be done through the parliamentary system to assist the wellbeing of animals. With three Members of Parliament and two Councillors elected, the Party is already taking huge steps forward for animals, holding the government to account, and introducing bills and motions to end animal cruelty.
The AJP believes there is a need for laws that recognise animals’ needs, capabilities and interests, whether that's farm animals, our native wildlife or beloved pets. As a political party, our role is to run in council, state and federal elections and to ensure laws are created and enforced to achieve genuine justice for animals.
