Can we talk about Cecil the Lion?
AUGUST 12, 2015
Today I want to talk about how it also damages conservation by, in much the same way as other media does, by reducing issues to pithy statements, devoid of nuance and heavily laden with emotion, and shaping the opinion of millions as it does so. Although lip service was paid to the fact that lions are endangered and a lion was poached, the language of anger was the language of animals rights. Animal rights is concerned with individual animals, and their suffering and welfare.
