The survey aims to investigate peoples attitudes and beliefs regarding the concept of animal mind. For instance, how do people’s views on animal cognition differ? Which mental abilities are considered the most important? Are animals thought to be capable of feeling emotions?

To answer these questions they are conducting an online survey investigating attitudes to animals and the implications for animal welfare policies. They are aiming to include as wide a range of views as possible to ensure the study is representative of both public opinion and various stakeholders in the animal use debate e.g. farmers, academics, animal charities and hunting societies.

As a thank you for participating in the survey, you will be offered the chance to win John Lewis vouchers (6 sets of £15 each available). The survey is completely anonymous and will take around 10 minutes to complete.
