We recently completed the publication of the third and final module of our online course on wild animal suffering, which contains 8 new videos focused on scientific research about the situation of animals in the wild and on how to help support this work.
The whole course is now available here:
The course is also available as a playlist on YouTube. In total, the course contains 28 videos, including the general introduction to the course, the summary of the course, and 26 units.
For each unit there is a page on the course site containing:
· the video
· the audio version of the video
· links to other webpages that are relevant to the content of the unit
· an expanded version of the script of the video, including notes with references for its content
In this way, each unit provides different ways to learn the contents of the video course, and to do further research beyond the content of the videos.
The units are classified into three different modules, which cover, respectively, the situation of animals in the wild and ways of helping them, the moral consideration of animals, and how the study of these topics can be promoted and carried out in academia.
Subtitles for the videos are also available in English and Portuguese, and they will be soon available in French. In addition, we will soon publish the Spanish version of the course.
You can also read the contents of the whole video course in the complete companion guide to the course, with extended explanations and references.
The final videos of the course are now published:

Wild animal suffering is a very important topic, which is also, unfortunately, very neglected. Animal Ethics is one of the few sources of information on it. Due to this, your support is critical for us to do our work.
The video course was possible thanks to Animal Charity Evaluators, who supported it through its Effective Animal Advocacy Fund. There is a lot more that we can do for this cause but are unable to due to lack of resources. Please consider supporting our work so we can continue to do more work like this.
