Horta, Oscar (2016) Changing attitudes towards animals in the wild and speciesism. Animal Sentience 7(15)
Yew-Kwang Ng, How welfare biology and commonsense may help to reduce animal suffering
I argue that despite Ng’s claim that we should postpone the defense of those animals that live in the wild, we do have reasons to start spreading concern for them now. We can do it by (i) changing public attitude by heightening awareness of speciesism, by which we will also challenge animal exploitation; and (ii) by disseminating information about the situation of animals in the wild.
