Animal Rights Live Animal Markets Essay Contest 2023
About the Contest
Join the Animal Rights Live Animal Markets Essay Contest 2023 organized by the American Painters and Peace Educators Association. This international contest invites participants from around the globe to submit their original essays addressing crucial issues related to live animal markets.
Live Animal Markets and Animal Welfare
Live animal markets are prevalent in various countries worldwide, including the United States, Indonesia, China, and Nigeria. Animals such as dogs, cats, fish, chickens, goats, sheep, and rabbits are often sold to restaurants or slaughtered for purchase in these markets. Unfortunately, wild animals like squirrels, civet cats, monkeys, turtles, frogs, pigeons, and sea life are sold in open-air markets without proper hygiene protocols, leading to unsanitary conditions and potential risks of animal-borne diseases and COVID-19 transmission.
Choose one of the following thought-provoking questions to guide your essay:
- Question 1: Observation and Investigation: Propose suggestions for improving regulations and resolving issues related to live animal markets.
- Question 2: Advancing Animal Law: Provide recommendations for promoting humane farming practices and enhancing animal welfare in farms and food processing companies.
