Fauna Connections: Using Data to Help Animals
Faunalytics will host a remote symposium for animal advocates on September 8, 2022. 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 the 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, how to improve adoption rates for shelter animals, and the impact of animal rights protests.
Format: Researchers will present their work orally in a 12-minute presentation, followed by a 3-minute Q&A. Depending on the number and content of submissions we receive, we may ask some presenters to be a part of a panel discussion instead, or to present their work in a virtual poster format. When you submit your proposal, you will have the option to opt-out of these formats.
How to submit: Please submit your presentation proposal here by Sunday, July 10th, 2022:
- Names and affiliations of all authors.
- Presentation title.
- Presentation abstract, maximum 250 words. Please include the research objective, methods, and results (or anticipated results).
- Recommendations for animal advocates based on the research to be presented, maximum 100 words.

Faunalytics will be in touch with all authors by Wednesday, July 20th.
