Sometimes, even for someone that works on the Internet and spends a good deal of time online, I slip into the (erroneous) thought process that websites are magical objects that just sort of appear when you type a URL into your browser’s address bar. One of the most fascinating things about the online world is just how slick and immersive it can be, obscuring the work that goes on behind the scenes. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately because, for the past year, Faunalytics has been in the process of building a new home for our vast array of resources. It’s work that has happened almost ..read more

Understanding People’s Attitudes Towards Wild Animal Welfare
Faunalytics Blog
by Willem Sleegers
1M ago
In the wild, animals frequently face hardships that many of us would consider terrible if they were to happen to humans. When we hear of someone starving, getting injured, being ill, or being the victim of an assault, we are quick to sympathize and perhaps even take action to help relieve their suffering. Many of us would do the same for animals who are close to humans, such as companion animals.  But what about animals living in the wild? Wild animals frequently face harsh weather conditions, starvation, disease, injuries, and death. Increasingly, ethicists and activists are calling for ..read more

How Do Australians Feel About Commercial Killing Of Kangaroos?
Faunalytics Blog
by Dennis Vink
1M ago
The world’s largest commercial slaughter of land-based wild animals takes place every night in remote areas of Australia. Each year, a quota is set for 4.5–6 million wild kangaroos to be killed by the commercial kangaroo industry. Their skins are used to produce soccer shoes and motorcycle suits, while their meat is sold as dog food and exotic game meat around the world. This trade is justified with the narrative that as native grazers, kangaroos compete with farmed animals for grass and therefore harm animal agriculture profits. While kangaroos are considered a national icon, many Australians ..read more
