Faunalytics' mission is to empower animal advocates with access to research, analysis, strategies, and messages that maximize their effectiveness to reduce animal suffering.
Animals need you, and you need data. We conduct essential research, maintain an online research library, and directly support advocates and organizations in their work to save lives. The range of data we offer helps our movement understand how people think about and respond to advocacy, providing advocates with the best strategies to inspire change for animals.
What You Need To Be Effective
Our Original Studies are carefully selected, designed, and conducted to provide actionable and insightful data for the animal protection movement. Our research prioritization process helps us identify studies that have a high potential impact for animals, and our commitment to transparency and rigorous methodology ensures that our studies are of the highest quality. Our studies have been covered in hundreds of publications across animal advocacy circles as well as in mainstream media, and have been used by animal advocacy groups worldwide.
The Faunalytics Library is completely free, and houses summaries of over 4,000 peer-reviewed research articles, public opinion surveys, and blog posts offering deep analysis on every animal issue you can think of. It’s the world’s biggest collection of opinion and behavior research about animal issues, and it’s presented with an emphasis on effectiveness, readability, and useability. Sign up for our email alerts and you’ll get weekly or monthly updates on the latest research we cover, delivered straight to your inbox.
Get a comprehensive overview of a particular topic area by exploring our Faunalytics Fundamentals, a series that provides infographics and visualizations of data to help you get informed and stay informed. The Fundamentals series has everything you need to get started or update your knowledge in a familiar area, and the visuals are highly shareable beyond an advocacy audience.
Have a research question that you don’t know how to solve? Want to dive deep into a particular issue but don’t know where to start? Just ask us! Faunalytics’ Office Hours give you the opportunity to connect with us directly and get one-on-one help with research design, strategy, and general knowledge questions. We also engage in select partner projects with advocacy groups. If you’re interested in partnering up with us, just reach out!
