Tomasik's website, Essays on Reducing Suffering (originally called Utilitarian Essays), features over 130 articles on a wide range of topics, including animal suffering, future suffering, consciousness, and ethics. His essay 'Why activists should consider making lots of money' (Tomasik 2006)[1] is the first explicit articulation of the argument for earning to give (Kaufman 2012).[2] Perhaps more than any other individual, Tomasik is responsible for establishing the field of wild animal welfare.
