Call for Experts

We're building a rolodex of experts on all sorts of animal issues, including the list below. If you are particularly well-versed in one of these areas, or you know someone who is, we'd appreciate it if you'd reach out to us at [email protected].

We freely admit that we'd welcome your help. We've been studying "animal politics" for nine years, but we assume there are real specialists out there who can help make this site smarter.

In no particular order …
