Welcome to the Blog for the Animals in Society Working Group. Here we will periodically blog about issues we find interesting and important. We have included this Blog to incite debate and discussion and it is important to note that the opinions expressed in the blog are those of the individual poster and they do not necessarily represent the opinions of the group as a whole or of Flinders University. While we realise passions can run high in many debates, we also expect bloggers to interact with each other respectfully, appreciative of people’s right to express different views. Personal attacks of any kind will not be tolerated and the conveners have the right to remove any material considered offensive and/or out of step with the group’s goals.
