These are just two of many scenarios out there that animals suffer through but our society fails to acknowledge. We don’t focus on the negative aspects of these issues and others, because we are too dependent on the benefits that come from them. Members of an organization called People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are out to end society’s ignorance in regards to the awareness of animal abuse. Their mission is to inform and convince people of animal rights. Participants hold the belief that animals have the right to be protected from being used for food, experimentation, clothing, and entertainment (PETA).
This sort of animal control ... ... middle of paper ... ...s for computer programs that will enable them to simulate a real animal. This actually goes for all animal testing, if we could simulate an animal or human, on a computer we would not have to subject anyone to testing. Animals do have the right not to treated inhumanely whether it be in the home, laboratory, classroom or field, yet as long as animals are being used to help benefit the world, animals in my opinion can be used in some respects.

They recognize the limitations and differences but the testing is done on animals because they are thought to be the closet match and best one with regards to applying this data to humans. Works Cited "Animal Research ." AMP. Americans for Medical Progress, n.d. Web.
The premises are the following: animals are living things thus they are valuable sentient beings, animals have feeling just like humans, and animals feel pain therefore animal suffering is wrong. 2 sources I will be using for my research are “The Fight for Animal Rights” by Jamie Aronson, an article that presents an argument in favour of animal rights. It also discusses the counter argument – opponents of animal rights argue that animals have less value than humans, and as a result, are undeserving of rights. Also I will be using “Animal Liberation” by Peter Singer. This book shows many aspects; that all animals are equal is the first argument or why the ethical principle on which human equality rests requires us to extend equal consideration to animals too.
Second, environmental philosophers have tended to focus on how ecological sciences could inform environmental ethics. I emphasize, in turn, that it is valuable to analyze and to discuss how ethical conceptions can and do inform ecological sciences. Introduction Ecologists approach nature with the aim of understanding it. Environmental ethicists approach nature asking how we should relate to it, or live in and with it. Two disciplines: ecology looking for the is of nature, environmental ethics seeking for an ought in respect to it.
The slogan: “Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on or use for entertainment”. But more than a slogan to march to, the pithy philosophy also guides, unifies, and activates the media presence that makes up the fundamental faces of PETA. PETA is also other than a cadre for animal revolution, “we are complete press sluts”. For animals, the revolution will be televised vigorously. Whereas this struggle might be understood as the instrumental use of media to effect an outside end for real world concerns (more TV makes less animals die), how PETA’s images have worked can be understood on an alternate screen of anti-aliased renders and widescreen projection.
The main purposes zoos claim they serve are conservation, research and education. Certainly, zoos do take part in some part of wildlife well-being; however, the negative effects seem to massively outweigh the benefits. I believe all animals are sentient beings that deserve love and respect. Zoos manage to exploit and use animals to their own advantage and that is why I think they should be banned. One of the major claims that zoos make is that they take part in animal conservation and breeding of endangered species.
From a different angle, J.E. Newall took a similar but more solid approach to the problems of environmental responsibility and sustainability. The contributions of this particular author zoomed in on the forgotten effects but also highlighted who is mainly in charge of decreasing the unlikely event. Mixing statistics with the probability of inefficient environmental flow provides the summary of the article. The report titled “Managing environmental responsibility” not only gives an overview of the issue but it also taps into the data that would be deemed relevant to researchers and evaluators across the world.
In the article “No, animals don’t have rights” (2014), the author argues that the movement for animals rights is reducing humans to animals, or upgrading animals to humans. However, this is not entirely true, humans are also animals, but with a higher degree of intelligence. In the article “Yes, animals have feelings” (2014), has shown that most scientists agree that vertebrates animals are, to different degrees, sentient. Humans can’t understand what they feel exactly, but we can notice their change in behavior and emotion. Animals are responsive and expressive, they have their intentions and preferences.
It informed me of ways that animals communicate that I was completely unaware of before reading the article. The article was not too technical. The article did provide sufficient background information, it was easily understood without ... ... middle of paper ... ...nowledge of the subject. The article generalized the subject to help the reader understand the concept of animal communication, but also gave specific examples of animals to give readers a sample of the ways of communication. I'm very surprised with what I learned by reading the three articles.
