NORTHERN TERRITORY – Animal rights organisation PETA has hit out at luxury fashion label Hermès over plans to establish a huge crocodile farm in Australia’s Northern Territory solely for the purpose of using their skins in apparel and accessories.

Reports in the country indicate that within five years the farm could hold upwards of 50,000 of the reptile, with development approval already having been granted by those in government.

PETA spokesperson Emily Rice says: “Given that wildlife experts warn that the international trade in the skins of exotic animals for luxury fashion promotes the spread of zoonotic diseases, fuelling the risk of future pandemics like COVID-19, it's unconscionable that the Northern Territory government would approve plans for this crocodile farm.”
