ATAAC | Australian Teens Against Animal Cruelty - Native Animals Ambassador - Nami Gohil

"The first thing that comes to a foreigners mind about Australia is the kangaroo. If kangaroos are so iconic to Australia, then why are they being so poorly treated? Why are we the only country that harms and eats our national emblem"

Nami has been a vegetarian since she was born, and is now a vegan. Growing up surrounded by the Australian bush, she loves to be around the native wildlife including lorikeets, cockatoos wallabies and has even encountered some harmless snakes!

She has always valued and cared for animals. However it was only in the past 2 years, after reading brochures by Animals Australia and the inspiring book “Eating Animals,” by Jonathan Safran Foer did she began to broaden her horizon and discover the truth about animals and how they are treated in Australia.

Nami was shocked and saddened after learning the horrific practices Australian animals endure. She decided to begin volunteering for the Vegan Society NSW, educating as many people as she can about the current issues of animals in both Australia and the world.

    A Ballarat dog breeder, Fiona McCoy from Maryheather Kennels, hid more than 50 dogs in crates in a public park whilst an RSPCA inspection was being conducted on her property. No charges have been laid yet, and she denies operating an intensive breeding facility but the whole situation is bizarre and worrying for these working breeds.
