(NOTE: This post was made under Animal Charity Evaluators’ previous name, Effective Animal Activism.)
The EAA Research team has been working hard, and we’d like to give you an update on what’s in store:
1. Humane Education Programs Analysis
We are continuing our research on the effectiveness of the variety of programs undertaken by animal groups, and have recently been working closely with organizations to look into Humane Education programs such as those run by HEART, Bridges of Respect, and one of our top charities: The Humane League. We find these programs to be promising candidates for highly-effective interventions and intend to share our findings in the near future.
2. Legislative Reform Campaigns Analysis
Another area of great interest to our members is the effectiveness of pursuing political avenues for change through legislative reforms. We believe this is a route which offers great potential.
A recent Compassionate Communities blog post gives an evidence-based introduction to why there is good reason to believe that legislative reform campaigns have the potential to do large amounts of good for animals:
3. Media Campaigns
We have just begun a new investigation into the effects of a variety of media campaigns including releasing undercover investigations, TV ads, and news coverage.
4. Continuing our Charity Evaluation
We are looking in closer detail at some of the largest animal organizations, and will be posting in-depth analysis in the coming months.
Call For Questions!
Although our research team has plenty of work, we’d also like to collect a list of future topics for inquiry. So we want to know from YOU, our members and readers:
How can you best use your time to make a difference for animals? What do you want to know about how to reduce suffering?
We’re happy to consider any questions about how to effectively make a difference for animals, in whatever sphere of your life – volunteering, career or philanthropy. These questions could be at the conceptual or ethical level, or they could concern nitty-gritty practicalities.
We’re particularly interested in questions that are not already well addressed by other groups.
The most popular questions will receive the attention of our research team, and their findings will feature in our blog and research section. Either post your questions below, or contact us directly.
