The Dodo is a website about animals -- we're witnessing a profound shift in the way people regard animals. They matter more to us now. We think of them less as objects at our disposal, as science increasingly reveals them to be intelligent, emotional, social beings that are not as different from us as we used to think they were. We're increasingly committed to learning about them, more interested in understanding and improving our relationships with them, and more passionate about protecting them. Join the Dodo community -- share your stories, your pictures, media -- anything animal-related -- and you'll be part of an unprecedented community for all those who love animals, are concerned about their welfare and want to make a difference.
