Animal Ethics is a non-profit organization formed to promote discussion and debate around issues in animal ethics and to provide information and resources for animal advocates. They also do outreach work in several different countries on the issue of speciesism.[2] Their aim is to create a world where moral consideration is extended to all sentient beings.[3] The organizations' website covers topics such as speciesism, veganism and wild animal suffering and has content translated into eight different languages.


Animal Ethics was co-founded by Daniel Dorado, Oscar Horta and Leach Mckelvie in 2012.[4]

In 2015 and 2017, Animal Ethics awarded an essay prize for essays on the topic of nonhuman animal suffering in the wild and ways to help them.[5]

Animal Charity Evaluators recommended Animal Ethics as one of its stand out charities from December 2015 to November 2017.[6]

In 2018, the organization extended their outreach work to China.[7]
