Animal Action Day
Take Action for Animals
Animal Action Day is an annual worldwide event to raise awareness, appreciation and respect for all animals and the environment.
The free, fun, community event was founded on the Gold Coast in 2007 by animal lover and AA Xpose Media Director/ Photojournalist Aldwyn Altuney. It is held each year around World Animal Week from October 4-10 and is a fundraiser for different animal charities each year.
The event aims to encourage people to take action for animals, even in small ways. You can do this by making healthy choices while shopping - buying c ruelty free; reducing your consumption of animal products or becoming vegetarian or vegan. You can also write to your local, state or federal elected rep to convey views on animal protection; volunteer with animal organisations; write a letter to the editor of your local papers; recycle and compost at home and express concerns to food companies and supermarkets that are involved in sustaining animal suffering.
"Together, we can all make a difference for animals and the environment," Aldwyn said.
Proceeds this year go to Voiceless.
Entry is FREE and there will be over 20 performers for a full day of entertainment, Best Dressed Owner Pet Look-alike Competition, stalls, food, raffles and more.
From 10am to midnight.
