The mission of Learning Animals is to emphasize concepts regarding the emotional, affiliative and cognitive side of animals, also in the coexistence with human animals, how to preserve it or rescue it if impacted by previous experiences.
In many countries and universities there is an increasing attention paid towards the study of interaction and co-existence between human and animals. There is an increasing awareness of the complexities of human-animal relations, as we have a growing knowledge about the life-worlds of animals, their different cultures and biologies. Applying this knowledge in day-to-day activities, with changing norms and values for an ethically and environmentally sustainable future, requires a continuous exchange across disciplinary boundaries.
If you are a student, you might have encountered this situation; you love animals, so you choose to follow a study related to animals, maybe even animal care and management of animal welfare, to end up learning about production standards for animal farming or the best practice training methods to turn pets into good pet-citizens.
