Wild animal welfare

Wild animals exist in huge numbers. Their aggregate suffering occurs on an enormous scale. However, very few people are concerned. The neglectedness of wild­ animal suffering (WAS) is, in part, due to the complexity of conceiving solutions to it. If WAS advocates stand any chance at finding cost-effective interventions, they need support. This presentation considers three research strategies: wildlife management, the impact of human activities on WAS, and wild animal experiences; and explores the role they’ll play in building the WAS movement.
