"Astonishingly, in a country as civilised as Australia, commerce still appears to come before compassion, and profit before preservation.Yes, we must eat. But why should the animals we eat suffer sad and miserable lives and then agonising deaths? If Australia is going to trade in animal flesh -- kangaroos, cattle, pigs, sheep and poultry -- why can this not be done humanely? If we could put a man on the moon over 40 years ago, and make huge advances in medicine, science and technology, surely we can process animals without them suffering needlessly in the 21st century.
I believe that the only way that we can get the message across to our political and business leaders and make the public aware that this terrible animal suffering has to stop is through investigative journalism. The Dalwood-Wylie Charitable Foundation has sponsored the important Voiceless Media Prizes since 2011 in the hope that vital changes in practices carried out in Australia will be made." Helena Wylie, 2012

Long-time Voiceless friends Dr Charlie Teo and his wife Genevieve have served as patrons of the Voiceless Awards for a number of years and are passionate advocates of our work.
"I think that the first thing we need to do is become aware of where our food comes from and how farm animals are treated. If more people became aware of these things there would be huge public outcry, which would lead to change.”

From 1997 to 2010, over 38 million kangaroos and wallabies were lawfully killed for commercial purposes.
Hundreds of thousands of female pigs in Australia are confined in small cages, continually impregnated until they are killed.
Each year approximately 800,000 dependent joeys are killed as collateral damage of the kangaroo industry.
Factory farmed meat chickens have been bred to grow at freakish rates, from chick to slaughterhouse in 35 days. Chickens naturally live between five to seven years.
About 500 million chickens are killed every year to feed Australia’s insatiable appetite for cheap chicken meat.
