The Role of Strategy in Effective Advocacy

Written by

I am sorry I was not able to attend the 2016 Effective Animal Advocacy Research Symposium which was held at Princeton University on November 12-13th. Interestingly, I note that this was organised and co-sponsored by Animal Charity Evaluators, so this ties in nicely with our last blog on Effective Altruism. Overviews of the conference presentations can be read on the event website. We were pleased to see that there were contributions on social science and movement building from Zachary Groff and Ling-Ann Hsiung, which we believe to be a crucial aspect of lasting social change.

Events We’re Watching this October

Written by


Our co-founder and board director, Janice Cox, was recently interviewed by our colleagues at the Global Animal Law Project (GAL)! In the interview she discusses our recent Model Animal Welfare Act, advocacy at the UN, and her dreams for animals in the future. GAL is a platform that provides a database of animal law provisions around the world, allows animal law professionals to connect to an international animal law community, and allows for practitioners to contribute their own ideas into the GAL “matrix.”

From Bangladesh to Switzerland, and from kittens to lions, we are happy to welcome the following organizations to the World Animal Net Directory, and encourage you to read about each organization's work below.

Rabies has been around for over 4,000 years, and has one of the highest fatality rates of any disease – it is almost always fatal. Nowadays, it is entirely preventable with modern vaccines and, by rights, it should be consigned to the history books. However, rabies is still at large and causing terrible suffering, mostly in marginalised and impoverished communities.

About the WAN Blog

The WAN blog allows us to share our expertise in the fields of policy, science, communications, management, and more in a manner that animal protection organizations can easily incorporate into their everyday work for animals. The blog also provides the opportunity to highlight important work of individual organizations and campaigns, and allows researchers, experts, and others outside of WAN to provide useful information to the animal protection community.
