Faunalytics’ Animal Tracker was an annual survey of U.S. adults’ attitudes and behavior with respect to animals and animal advocates. The first survey was conducted in 2008 and included 15 core questions; a subset of five questions were asked every subsequent year until 2019, the final year of the Animal Tracker.
