The RSPCA in South Australia calls on the state to withdraw from the export trade after the end of a four-month ban imposed by the government on the export of live sheep to the Middle East.

Now that live export is being resent from Fremantle in WA, RSPCA SA fears a possible resumption of live export from Port Adelaide.

It is the second largest Australian port for trade, after WA & # 39; s that deals with nearly 90 percent of live sheep exports.

Monday, the export of live sheep was resumed in WA by exporter Rural Export and Trading WA.

The shipment is en route to Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates.

Dr. Rebekah Eyers of RSPCA SA said that this month's resumption ignores evidence that exports to the Middle East in September and October are just as dangerous as those at the start of the northern summer period.

"We are urging our state government to help the few South Australian farmers whose sheep can endure these horrific journeys, to leave the trade and move towards a more sustainable future," said Dr. Eyers.

The last living export ship that loaded cattle and sheep in Port Adelaide was the Al Shuwaikh, which departed in May 2018 via Fremantle.

Emanuel Exports was the exporter responsible for the ship that was the subject of leaked recordings released in 2017, with sheep dying in blistering circumstances traveling from Australia to the Middle East.
