Faunalytics infographics are a fun and visual way to learn about animal issues. Our collection is always growing, so check back regularly!
Sometimes information and research results are easiest to understand when presented in a visual format. Faunalytics develops infographics that help summarize essential information for advocates, students, teachers, and anyone interested in animal topics. Check out our growing collection below.
Faunalytics’ Fundamentals are a collection of resources that provide the latest and best data for a variety of important animal issues and topics. What’s more, they present their information in a highly visual “extended infographic” format. Below, you’ll find links to our Fundamentals on farmed animals, research animals, companion animals, and wildlife.
The first in our new series of visual “Fundamentals,” our focus on Farmed Animals contains information about animal ethology, consumer opinions, scale of the industry, environmental impacts, and more. See the full resource.
The second in our series of Fundamentals, with a collection of infographics describing the animals most commonly used in research and dissection, the species excluded from the Animal Welfare Act, attitudes, breeding and transport, and research alternatives. See the full resource.
The third in our series of Fundamentals, with a collection of infographics about the state of companion animal issues in the United States and beyond. This resource covers ethology, breeding, free-roaming animals, sheltering, and much more. See the full resource.
Our fourth installment looks at the wide world of wildlife, and focuses on the issues where humans have the most negative — and potential for positive — impact. If you want to know more about endangered species, the exotic animal trade, or how zoos affect animals, look no further! See the full resource.
Our fifth Fundamental looks at diseases spread from animals to humans, also known as zoonoses. We look at the COVID-19 outbreak, but also take a much broader view of the range of different zoonoses out there, and how we can stop their spread before they start. See the full resource.
Our sixth Fundamental looks at the vast world of the oceans, and the amazing animal life that inhabits them. We take a deep dive into fishing, marine animal conservation, captivity, and more. See the full resource.
Our seventh Fundamental in the series looks at the ways in which the pursuit of animal justice and social justice are intertwined, and how we can be more holistic advocates. See the full resource.

In recent years, corporate lobbying efforts have played an increasing role in animal advocacy, and have been successful in bringing about dozens of commitments to use or provide cage-free eggs and enact other welfare improvements. These changes have been attributed by the companies themselves to pressure from animal advocacy groups. We looked at how the general public views these changes. Check out the full study here and an infographic summary below.
This comprehensive infographic looks at the results of our study of BRIC nations – Brazil, Russia, India, and China – and their attitudes towards farmed animals. The BRIC countries are among those that kill the most animals for food. While they currently have relatively low per capita meat consumption, they are rapidly increasing their consumption of animal products. The overarching goal of the study was to examine country differences in current meat consumption, recent changes in meat consumption, support for policies to improve farmed animal welfare, attitudes and perceived norms about the importance of farmed animal welfare, and beliefs about the impact of consuming meat. See the full resource here.
People are ready for a change. According to recent research, about 71% of people in the U.S. identify as meat-eaters today, but only 55% of people would like to keep identifying that way in the future. What’s more, 44% of people fail to limit their meat consumption simply because of taste. In many ways, these are the ideal candidates to convert to clean meat. In two graphic primers, Faunalytics explores what clean meat is and why it matters. See the full resources here and here.
