Why isn’t _____ in the Faunalytics Library?
We may not be aware of it. If you come across information that seems like a good fit for our database, please feel free to send it to us.
Why is the language in this article hostile to animals?
Due to the very diverse nature of our sources and the content included in the Library, Faunalytics uses the original language of the research when entering new records. As a result, the database may include terms that many advocates consider inherently misleading and/or speciesist. Faunalytics would like to assure our users that we are aware of the controversial nature of such terms and we do not encourage or endorse their adoption in any way. Rather, our intention is to be as unbiased as possible in our “presentation” of the data and to maintain integrity of the research by making content available in its original form. Additionally, knowing what the “enemy” knows can help us craft better marketing strategies against them.
