The famous humorist and Youtubeur has put his notoriety at the service of the animals this year more than ever. After realizing several videos that have raised awareness about the suffering of captive animals, such as HumanWorld against the exploitation of orcs and other prisoners in the SeaWorld and Marineland marine parks, Rémi Gaillard has embarked with all his heart on various actions to The animal cause this year.

Locked up in a cage of the Montpellier SPA for 4 days, the humorist suffered from captivity and cold in order to promote an awareness of abandonment. His media action, where PETA joined it by broadcasting "live" videos on social networks, also raised more than 200,000 euros for the refuge, to adopt many animals and to make the general public aware of The suffering of animals in captivity, whether abandoned pets, animals raised for food or those enclosed in marine parks, circuses and zoos.

But Rémi did not stop there: he participated in his way to the PETA campaign which encourages citizens to ask their mayor to pass a decree prohibiting the arrival of circuses with animals in their city. Indeed, after meeting with the Mayor of Montpellier, Philippe Saurel, the latter seems to share this wish. The king of the hoax also appeared in an anti-fur advertisement widely displayed in the Parisian subway and narrated a video showing the suffering of animals in slaughterhouses, claiming to aim to reduce his meat consumption to get by without it.

"With millions of subscribers, Rémi has relayed on a large scale the message that animals deserve our compassion," says Isabelle Goetz, spokesman for PETA France. "We thank the comedian with a big heart for putting his media coverage at the service of the beings whose daily suffering is too often forgotten or ignored and for having inspired others to act for animals.
