Fauna Connections: Using Data to Help Animals


Faunalytics will host a remote symposium for animal advocates on September 14, 2023 (tentatively 12:00pm-5:30pm EDT). We invite academics and scientists from the social and behavioral sciences, or related disciplines, to submit a presentation abstract of original research that discusses the real-life implications and recommendations of such data for animal advocates in any of four areas: farmed animals, companion animals, wild animals, and animals used in science. Examples of topics related to this theme include, but are not limited to, meat-reduction interventions, how people think about animals, barriers and challenges in transitioning to veganism, how to build coalitions with other social movements, how to influence policy-makers, how to transition to animal-free methods in science, the impact of outdoor cats on wildlife, and how to improve adoption rates for shelter animals.
