Learn about how you can volunteer for high-impact charities or choose effective career paths that help the most animals. We also provide a selection of interviews with leaders with professional experience in effective animal advocacy.
ACE prioritizes among animal causes in order to direct our research to the areas in which it can do the most good. We’re not able to thoroughly review each of the thousands of animal-focused charities in the world, so we narrow our focus to the causes we find most promising in order to have the best chance of identifying charities and interventions that are exceptionally effective.
In addition to reviewing charities, ACE reviews individual tactics that organizations or individuals use to advocate for animals. To date we have considered Leafleting, Online Ads, Corporate Outreach, Undercover Investigations, and Humane Education. Learn more about these tactics, and our findings about their effectiveness.
Animal advocacy organizations use a wide variety of tactics to address many forms of animal suffering. Identifying which methods most efficiently solve which problems is thus a key step in comparing programs and organizations. To find these methods, ACE researches the effectiveness of various tactics and interventions intended to improve the lives of animals. This research helps us identify the strongest animal advocacy programs, and can provide guidance to animal advocates in deciding which course to pursue. As such, we prioritize evaluating interventions with the potential to be highly cost effective and about which we believe there is ample information available.
