What We Do

Our three main areas of work bring the power of science to animal advocacy; raise a new generation of scholar advocates; and create a new future for animals in captivity.

Bringing Science to Animal Law

Kimmela is at the center of the intersection of science and animal law, leading with new online courses, initiatives, and collaborations with top animal law and policy programs.

Promoting Scholar Advocacy

Working with young people and their teachers to raise a new generation of scholar advocates and to move animal advocacy into the mainstream of academia.

Applying Science to Animal Advocacy

Kimmela applies peer-reviewed science to advocacy for the protection and rights of farmed animals, captive wildlife, and animals used in therapy.
