Buy one kangaroo steak and get two dead joeys for free
Please contact Lidl and ask them to drop kangaroo meat. Viva! persuaded all UK supermarkets not to sell kangaroo meat over a decade ago now, and Lidl are the first one to break ranks and put it back on sale.
This trade will almost certainly lead to even more kangaroos being killed – and their babies and young shot or decapitated and then simply discarded. In other words, consumers are responsible not just for the death of the animal they consume – but also the death of her young. Around 20 per cent of kangaroos killed each year are female – which means around a million joeys are killed for the trade each year. Use our handy email/letter to contact them.

Badgers are under imminent threat in Britain. Scapegoats for farmers' failings and outrageous political backslapping.
This summer, thousands could meet a violent end at the end of a gun in a mass slaughter driven by the dairy industry. Read more. See the video above for our recent Bristol demo, where Viva!'s founder and director Juliet Gellatley says why people should boycott dairy to save badgers. Read about our demo here and see the press coverage.
Please help us spread the message that one of the best ways to save badgers is to dump dairy and tell others why you're doing it. We have produced our new Dump Dairy – Save a Badger leaflets (PDF) and posters (PDF) and we held a special Day of Action on Saturday May 18 (thank you to everyone who took part!). You can still get involved: order your free materials for door-dropping or stalls today.
Find out more about Viva!'s campaigns for badgers and please pledge to boycott dairy today. Over 4,000 people have already pledged to dump dairy to save badgers - costing the industry an estimated £2.7 million a year so far!
Shockingly, Nikon not only facilitate and promote the shooting of wild animals with cameras – they also do it with guns. The hypocrisy of this global company is one they have seemingly fought hard to keep from UK consumers.
Many wildlife photographers use Nikon cameras, but few know that Nikon sponsor trophy hunting in the United States and also produce a riflescope specifically designed for killing large wild animals in Africa such as lions despite their numbers plummeting.
Viva! patrons and celebrities join together in voice for animals
There is an exciting project brewing for Christmas 2013! It is driven by a burning desire to save animals and the verve and enthusiasm of Debbie Curtis – who is known affectionately as 'The Mistress of Swing' and is the UK's only Fully Professional Female Big Band Leader.
