Our Campaigns

Here are the issues we campaign on, click on each tab below to learn why!

Circus animals are beaten into submission, through fear are forced to perform unnecessary acts.

A little known industry in Ireland that we aim to highlight with a new campaign

Bloodsports such as fox hunting, stag hunting & hare coursing still take place in Ireland. 

Charles River Laboratories, one of the biggest animal testing companies in the world, has a lab located in Co. Mayo.

So many crustaceans are killed every year, that the amount is – offensively – measured in tons, rather than individual numbers.

Zoos do nothing to help animals. They only exist as a source of entertainment for people.

What right have anglers to inflict pain and suffering upon sentient beings? 

If you knew what happened to these poor animals, would you make a difference?

Shockingly, over 70 million animals are killed for their fur every year around the world. Don’t support an industry built on the deaths of animals.

If you support Greyhound racing, you’re directly helping fund the abuse and deaths of these animals. 

Hare coursing is already banned in Wales, Scotland, England, and Northern Ireland. It’s time for this unnecessary cruelty to end in the Republic of Ireland too!

It is still legal in Ireland for horses to be used to pull carriages. Most of this takes place in Dublin, as a tourist attraction.

15,000 horses are bred every year, between Ireland and the U.K., for the racing industry.

Contrary to popular belief, leather is NOT a by-product of the meat industry.

As of February 2013, live exports resumed from Ireland after an almost 10 year ban.

In 2024, we and Animal Rebellion launched a joint investigation into Ireland’s pig industry. Click to find out more!

Another hidden agricultural industry that we aim to highlight through a new campaign.

Ireland is the puppy farming capital of Europe. Shockingly, there are over 100 puppy farms in the country.

Unfortunately it is still legal in the Republic of Ireland to sell reptiles. Some are bred in captivity, and others are captured from the wild.

Just like animal circuses, show jumping is the exploitation of animals for the sake of money and entertainment.

Silkworms are boiled alive for their silk – all for the sake of fashion.

Millions of animals such as mice, rats, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, monkeys and sheep are killed during – or after – experiments every year, in laboratories all over the world.

Another cruel industry built on exploitation of animals.

Pressure campaigns can result in political change

From the very beginning, NARA has always been a pressure campaign group. In terms of strategy, it means we focus on one issue at a time, and employ an array of tactics until we achieve our goal. Sometimes the result even includes a change in the law in Ireland. We believe pressure campaigns to be the most successful way of achieving total animal liberation.
