PETA Asia-Pacific was formed in 2005 and is based in Hong Kong, campaigning in 15 countries in Asia. PETA Asia Pacific is an affiliate of PETA US, which claims to be the world’s largest animal rights organization, which has more than 1.6 million members and supporters around the world.
PETA Asia-Pacific and its affiliates are dedicated to establishing and protecting the rights of all animals. PETA Asia-Pacific operates under the simple principle that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment. PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in factory farms, laboratories, the clothing trade, and the entertainment industry. They also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of birds, and other animals.
PETA Asia-Pacific works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns. PETA Asia-Pacific has already created quite a stir with attention-grabbing ads and groundbreaking protests in countries like Malaysia, Thailand, and Japan, where public demonstrations are rare. PETA Asia Pacific has already won victories big and small for animals from shutting down a roadside zoo in Vietnam to distributing more than 35,000 vegetarian starter kits in the Philippines.
