Attitudes 2 Animal Cognition Survey


Public Attitudes to Animal Cognition 2

Online Survey

The second phase of the attitudes to animal cognition survey is now closed. Thanks to everyone who took the time to participate in the previous survey. The results of the survey will be published online as soon as possible!







Your help with this new research would be greatly appreciated!

This follow up survey aims to investigate peoples attitudes and beliefs regarding animal cognition. For instance, how do people’s views on animal mind differ? Which mental abilities are uniquely human? What sources of information affect your views on animal mind?

To answer these questions we are conducting an online survey investigating attitudes to animals and the implications for animal welfare policies. We 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). Other vouchers are available if you are not resident in the UK. The survey is completely anonymous and will take 10-15 minutes to complete.
