Celebrity-backed Open Letter to George Eustice – Ayrton Cooper, Campaigns Manager

Our celebrity and expert-backed letter, addressed to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, George Eustice, is calling for the government to implement a complete ban on duck farming in the UK. It has been signed on by Actor and Activist, Evanna Lynch, Architects Lead Vocalist, Sam Carter, Actor and Activist, Peter Egan, Springwatch Presenter, Zoologist and Conservationist, Megan McCubbin, and many more! We are a collaboration of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Celebrities, Ethologists, Veterinarians and Animal Sanctuaries demanding that UK duck farming is banned.

Following the completely inadequate and dismissive response by Victoria Prentis, Minister of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, to the Parliamentary Question tabled by Kerry McCarthy MP, on behalf of Animal Justice Project, we must take action ourselves!


The full list of signatories are as follows:

Evanna Lynch, Actor and Activist

Megan McCubbin, Zoologist, Conservationist and TV Presenter

Peter Egan, Actor and Activist

Sam Carter, Architects Lead Vocalist

Melanie Joy, PhD, EdM, Psychologist

When our own government shows time and time again that they do not care about the rights of animals and rather, they are only willing to help exploitative companies commodify the bodies of non-human animals, we must come together and take action. Duck farming is a dwindling industry and with your help, we can keep it in decline and welcome its demise.

As always,

For the animals.
