Crocodiles in Australia can be taken from the wild, be intensively farmed, and potentially have issues at slaughter. If your organisation sources product from crocodiles there’s a lot you can do to better understand your current supply, and where it can be improved.
RSPCA Australia is opposed to the use of any animal where the purpose of their death is primarily to produce a non-essential luxury item like fur or skin.
See our policy on fur or skin production
RSPCA Australia is opposed to the killing of wild animals for commercial purposes (unless this meets specific criteria) and to the farming of animals taken from the wild, due to the risk of pain, injury or distress arising from the capture, transport, handling and long-term confinement of these animals.
