Moral Menagerie seeks to provide an overview of the evidence for sophisticated cognition and social relationships in animals. It seeks wherever possible to provide video, audio or photographic evidence of scientifically documented abilities and behaviours.

Along the way we hope to get a clearer sense of what constitutes sentience, morality, intelligence and consciousness and explore the conditions under which these emerge in humans and other animals. We will also investigate some of the ethical questions these discoveries raise about animal welfare, moral agency and moral worth.
