On that occasion, these animal welfare organizations are staging a multimedia event ‘World Animal Day - Bosnia and Herzegovina against Fur’ at the shopping center ‘Alta’ from 1100 to 1600 hours and everyone is invited to attend.
The event is organized in cooperation with Serbian fashion company ‘P.S. Fashion’.
Special focus will be set on raising awareness about the need for Bosnia and Herzegovina to join the growing global trend of outlawing fur farming.
Namely, at the beginning of 2018, the Parliament of Bosnia and Herzegovina passed a decision to postpone implementation of a previously adopted fur farming ban until 2028, which was devastating for the fur-free efforts in a country with around 73 active fur farms.
The upcoming event represents a follow-up activity after the anti-fur campaign of South-East Europe ‘Fur Free Forever’ was successfully launched earlier this year.
It will provide education about harmful effects that the fur industry has on the welfare of animals and humans, as well as the environment.
The World Animal Day is traditionally marked on October 4, to draw attention to the need for improving the welfare standards of animals around the world. It is part of a social movement uniting animal welfare organizations into a global force to make the world a better place for all animals.
