“Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.” – Thomas Alva Edison


Life in a Cage

Život u kavezu
Chinchilla Chinchi, the mascot of our campaign against killing animals for fur, asked citizens to join her in a cage for a few minutes as part of a public performance. Chinchi wanted to teach citizens about the feeling of captivity, fear and despair which chinchillas experience at farms. She received support of many citizens in her attempt to stop the shameful initiative to change the Law. If you too want to show your support for Chinchi’s cause, feel free to write to us.

Many tasty dishes were served, including carrot and orange soup, sesame and peanut rice, bulgur salad, sesame hummus, samosas, rice pudding and many other delicacies.

For the end of animal prisons in Marjan

Za kraj zootvora na Marjanu
We wrote to the City of Split to ask them to stop imprisoning wild and domestic animals inside zoos. Instead of building a new animal prison, they should open an animal shelter, as is their legal obligation.
