Wild Animal Suffering and Intervention in Nature

Speaker: Oscar Horta, Co-Founder Animal Ethics
Time: Saturday, 04:30 PM – 05:00 PM
Room: H3010

To date animal advocacy has paid little attention to the problem of wild animal suffering. Yet given the number of wild animals and the severity of the harms they suffer, few other issues can be considered more morally important. Oscar will present data that suggests that most wild animals have lives of net suffering and defend the view that animal advocates should be concerned about preventing or mitigating it.
