Model, actor and strict vegetarian Isabelle Cornish has starred in an exciting new ad for PETA, shot by top photographer Daniel Boud!
“Fish are one of the most abused animals on the planet”, Cornish explains in a behind-the-scenes video.
Fish are intelligent animals who experience fear and distress when they’re hooked or netted and pulled from the water. Scientific studies confirm that fish are sensitive individuals who feel pain, just as dogs and cats do. One issue of the journal Fish and Fisheries cited more than 500 research papers on fish intelligence that proved that fish are smart, can use tools and have impressive long-term memories and sophisticated social structures.
And as Cornish points out, “There are no Australian laws that protect these fish, and if the same things were done to dogs and cats, it wouldn’t be allowed”.
