In 1982, l’ADAC (Association de Défense des Animaux de Compagnie) is created to defend the animal cause off the screen.

The foundation is today managed by Reha Hutin following the death of her husband in 1996.

This foundation is also aiming to raise awareness about those topics and is aiming to make legislation and animal status evolve.

 

Brigitte Bardot Foundation

In 1962, Brigitte Bardot, who is then an actress begins what will be considered her first fight for animal protection by advocating against the use of painful electric shock pistols in slaughterhouses. Indeed, after seeing photographs of the conditions in which animals were killed, she decided to become a vegetarian and initiated her first battle to defend animal rights.

 

The Brigitte Bardot Foundation (La Fondation Brigitte Bardot) was launched by Bardot in Saint-Tropez in 1986 where she auctioned her jewellery and other personal possessions to raise 3 million French francs for her campaigns and activities. In 1988, the organisation moved to Paris and in 1992 the foundation was recognised of public utility. 

 

The foundation is engaged in many fights including the end of slaughter without stunning, the end of hunting and the end of the marketing and consumption of horse meat, among others.

 

 

Les Néréides Loves Animals is supporting, on a regular basis, organisations that are contributing to the defence of animal rights. Recently, the LNLA foundation made donations to Wildlife Rescue organisation, the largest wildlife rescue organisation in Australia, and to Zoo Victoria, a world-leading zoo-based conservation organisation dedicated to fighting wildlife extinction. Two organisations, based in Australia, which the foundation wanted to help following the fires.
