The news platform The Animal Reader wants to encourage people to question whether it's ethically and morally correct to treat animals the way we do in our society.
Almost 70% of animals have disappeared since 1970 because people have mistreated animals and the environment.
Animals are killed for food, clothes and medical tests. They're treated as products and not living beings, and that needs to stop.
The way we exploit animals for food, clear forests and unleash new diseases could be solved by educating the global audience to start treating animals as individuals rather than objects to be exploited.
We need to make humans aware that we can’t keep treating animals like this. That it is all of our responsibility to end this cruelty.
How do we get people to feel more compassion for animals?
By reporting about animals the same way we do about humans to remind the world that what happens to animals is as important as what happens to humans.
It's a given fact that any news about humans gets more coverage than news about animals.
We want to change that and believe people will have more compassion towards animals if the media talks about them as living beings and not things.
The Animal Reader wants to create a platform where animal lives are the focus of news stories.
We need to attract more journalists with an animal-focused view. For that, we need your help.
