Some info on compassionate conservation

Well – I am pleased to see there is a Centre for Compassionate Conservation at UTS in NSW. “Compassionate conservation stipulates that we need a conservation ethic that prioritises the protection of other animals as individuals: not just as members of populations of species, but valued in their own right. This is important because of what we now know about their cognitive and emotional lives (consciousness and sentience). We attempt to provide modern solutions for sharing space with nature and for fostering the possibility for diverse species to live in better coexistence.”
