Gervais supports Animal Welfare

Comedian Ricky Gervais has added his support to the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare (UDAW) and is calling on his fans to do the same.

The petition launched last year and aims to collect a ­total of ten million signatures worldwide.

Once completed, it will be presented to the United Nations to call for global recognition of the sentience of animals and improved animal welfare.

It is an inter-governmental initiative led by government representatives from countries such as India, Kenya and Costa Rica.
