Has anyone actually read the draft declaration? Whilst some of the aims appear laudable, it also mentions 'using' animals in a 'sustainable manner.'

Definitely not veg*n friendly.

Bof, is that the section you were mentioning? It didn't mention using in a sustainable manner. It said caring for and treating in a humane and sustainable manner.

ACKNOWLEDGING that the humane use of animals can have major benefits for humans;
