Meet Phoenix - Companions Not Commodities

Today we announce the launch of an exciting new project that we've been working on with Companions Not Commodities, a group that aims to raise awareness about issues relating to Greyhound racing in Australia.

Earlier this year we held a photoshoot with Phoenix, a lucky dog rescued from the racing industry having been abandoned and destined for death. The photos we took were used for a billboard, which was erected earlier this week on Hoddle Street, Melbourne.

Along with the billboard, we created this video, which focuses on Phoenix, but tells the story of the lives of tens of thousands of dogs each year in the racing industry.

Launch of 'Jeedara': trailer for upcoming documentary.

Today we launched the trailer and accompanying website for the upcoming documentary, 'Jeedara', which we are producing for Sea Shepherd Australia and The Great Australian Bight Alliance.

The trailer for the upcoming film, to be released on Earth Day 2017.

As well as documenting the campaign, Fair Projects worked alongside Sea Shepherd Australia to create the website for the hosting of the film. We are also producing a photo-book celebrating the campaign, which will be available for sale upon the premiere of the documentary. Both the film and the book will be used to assist Sea Shepherd raise funds to continue their fight for the Bight.

Colony Eggs : Not All They're Cracked Up To Be - SAFE

In 2015, Fair Projects teamed up with SAFE - New Zealand's leading Animal Rights organisation - to produce this video for their campaign against the introduction of 'Colony Cage' eggs in New Zealand.

Starring New Zealand television personality Suzanne Paul, this video was a part of SAFE's campaign against the introduction of colony cage systems in New Zealand.

This satire video was released in late 2016, and received widespread media attention in New Zealand, encouraging the debate about the welfare of chickens in the production of eggs in New Zealand.

On the 3rd of December, 2016, Sea Shepherd Global began their 11th Antarctic Whale Defence Campaign, 'Operation Nemesis'.
