Welcome to the Animal People Forum…

...a global forum in which people who care about animals can speak and be heard! We're here to foster the open exchange of knowledge, ideas, and tactics relevant to animal rights, which we define simply as the belief that animals' lives and experiences matter. We welcome submissions from anyone of any background, and through the interaction of diverse ideas and perspectives, hope to arrive at new insights to guide us toward a brighter, more compassionate future for all living creatures.

Location of Unique Species Discoveries Should Be Kept Secret

In this age of extinctions, governments love to trumpet any rare or unique findings of species. Publicity can generate support to prevent species from becoming extinct, but it may also backfire when publicity incites the interest of poachers and betrays details of a species’ location.
