Our research focus is primarily the prioritization of wild animal welfare issues and the assessment of the cost-effectiveness of near-term interventions. We use our research to recommend and improve strategies for reducing wild animal suffering.

Our outreach work is focused on three demographics—researchers, funders, and wild animal advocates. We work with researchers and funders to grow welfare biology as a field, and with advocates to grow wild animal welfare as a cause area. We see an emphasis on effective communication strategies as an integral part of this work.
