Animal Ethics is a nonprofit 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 countries on the issue of speciesism.[3][4] Their aim is to create a world where moral consideration is extended to all sentient beings.[5][6] The organization's website covers topics such as speciesism, sentience, veganism and wild animal suffering and has content translated into several languages.[7]
