Cars, cats and climate change represent a few of the growing but neglected harms to animals caused by seven billion busy people. These and many other aspects of human life cause a spectrum of harms ranging from animal suffering to loss of biodiversity. Animal welfare and conservation thus involve many shared problems. Indeed, animal welfare and conservation need to be combined under a single “ethic for animals and nature” derived less from ethical theory than from thoughtful attention to the diverse effects of human activities.
Professor Fraser will also be presenting his ANZCCART lecture in Dunedin on 14 March, Palmerston North on 15 April, and Auckland on 17 April
