Speciesism Is Bad News for Animals (Op-Ed)

Marc Bekoff | November 29, 2013 05:20pm ET

Marc Bekoff, emeritus professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, is one of the world's pioneering cognitive ethologists, a Guggenheim Fellow, and co-founder with Jane Goodall of Ethologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. This essay is adapted from one that appeared in Bekoff's column Animal Emotions in Psychology Today. He contributed this article to LiveScience's Expert Voices: Op-Ed & Insights.

I continue to feel that this is "the century of the nonhuman animals" (animals).

Daily, I receive data and stories about their fascinating behavior and about our complex, frustrating, paradoxical and challenging relationships with them (anthrozoology). Indeed, just as I was writing this essay someone sent me a notice titled "Animals listed as a top priority on the UN's global survey."
