Infancia Sin Violencia – Worldwide

On an international level, FFW is fighting against the involvement of children in bullfighting, both as spectators and trainee toreros. It is in this context that it launched "Infancia SIN viOLEncia" (Childhood without violence). Through lobbying, raising public awareness and submitting reports, in particular to international child protection agencies, Infancia SIN viOLEncia seeks to secure the prohibition of subjecting children under 16 years old to the barbaric spectacle of bullfighting.

No More Funds – Europe

The #NoMoreFunds campaign was launched by Fondation Franz Weber to stop European Union subsidies going to the bullfighting industry. This work is carried out on the European level, but also regionally and nationally, on the basis that public funds should not be used to finance such a barbaric practice.

Santuario Equidad – Argentina

The Santuario Equidad is located in San Marcos Sierra, in the centre of Argentina. It was created by Fondation Franz Weber as a logical consequence of the "Basta de Tas" campaign, which aims to replace these horses with motorised vehicles and hence, put an end to their mistreatment in Argentina and all of Latin America. The freed animals are adopted by individuals or taken to the Sanctuary Equidad. The Sanctuary also takes care of other animals subjected to abuse or neglect, including dogs, sheep and pigs.

eZOO – Worldwide

The eZOO is a revolutionary concept for virtual zoos, based on the latest technology and developed by the animal protection association LIBERA! and Fondation Franz Weber.

Using virtual reality, animatronics, augmented reality, 3D projections, interactive exhibitions and other innovative technologies, the eZOO aims to educate, promote scientific research and raise public awareness of wildlife - all while respecting animals, their habitats and eco-systems. At the eZOO, visitors not only feel immersed in the habitat of each species, but also experience something truly unique.
