Welcome to WikiProject Animals in media. Several Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Animals in media and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.

A note about our inclusion: an animal does not have to be anthropomorphic to be included. It can be parahuman like Daughter of Smoke and Bone (some characters have animal and human attributes), fully anthropomorphic like Kaze, Ghost Warrior (Kaze and the others walk on their hind legs, talk, wear clothes, and handle tools like people, but retain their animal shape), somewhat anthropomorphic like Warriors (novel series) (the cats talk and have a complex hierarchy, but don't act like humans or understand them), minorly anthropomorphic like The Call of the Wild (Buck doesn't talk or act like a human, but he has human thoughts), or not anthropomorphic at all like Toto in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (Toto acts exactly like a dog).


  • The main goal of WikiProject Animals in media is to improve articles that either feature animals or have animals at its heart. Various sub-goals are on the to-do list.


  • Literature set in an animal's world.
  • Literature with an animal as the main character.

  • Theatre programs with either a real animal or a puppet in the shape of an animal.
  • Animal characters in literature, movies, television, or theatre.
  • Video games set in an animal's world

  • Literature must mention the animal as if it were in or was previously in the world the character lives in.
  • Movies and television shows must have the animal actually appear or be heard on screen.
  • Theatre must meet at least one of the above guidelines.

  • Brambleberry of RiverClan (I read much animal literature, and Disney movies featuring animals, such as Bambi or The Lion King. I also had the idea for this to be animal literature only, but others inspired me to make it all media.) 15:02, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Oakley77 (I will probably be most active in the animated movies dept., but I can help anywhere and will be apart of the Assessment dept.) 16:19, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Brambleclawx (I'll probably be sticking to young adult literature, such as Warriors, stuff by David Clement-Davies, and the like.) 18:20, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

  • SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  – I have some interest in actual animals that are notable (e.g. film/TV animals); animal (as well as human) albinism in popular culture; characterization of domestic animal breeds' traits in the media; and CGI reconstruction of extinct fauna (e.g. the Walking with Dinosaurs franchise and similar works); also collectibles (coins, stamps, etc.) featuring animals, to the extent a few of them are notable.
