We Animals: The Farm in My Backyard

April 8, 2019

Today we’re launching The Farm in My Backyard, a new short film that looks at the devastating impacts that the mink farming industry is having on waterways, animals, and communities in Nova Scotia.

We’ve wanted to tell this story for a long time.

It’s a story of mismanagement, missed opportunities, and government turning its back on common sense and the pleas of its citizens. Our hope is that this film will not only uncover this forgotten story, but also provide a tool to those fighting for change on this issue. Change for animals, for fragile ecosystems, and for coastal communities.

In many countries around the world, markets for fur are closing down as demand wanes. But in the tiny Canadian province of Nova Scotia, the government is putting its own citizens’ well-being second to this controversial industry, doubling down on its support for the fur industry despite its devastating impacts on the environment, animals, and the local residents pleading for change.

We Animals is working with leading groups in Canada and around the world to end fur farming. Sign up to stay informed:

Fur belongs on whom it was born, not by the vain and frivolous worn

    They used to farm mink here in the UK. Some escaped or were simply released into the wild, and now they are a big conservation problem. They are not a native species. Thanks for the link x
