Marianne Thieme

POLITICS, Netherlands

Marianne Thieme is a Dutch politicien and leader of the Animals Party, the first in the world to sit in the European parliament.

Vinton Cerf

TECHNOLOGY, United States

What if the Internet became a means to share information and emotions with animals? An interspecies internet, this is Vinton Cerf’s project, co-founder of the Internet with Neil Gershenfeld, who controls the Center for Bits and Atoms of the famous MIT, Diana Reiss, a specialist in cetaceans and musician Peter Gabriel. The aim of this project is to determine whether the human and non-human species can interact with each other and discover the world's perception of animals, and what they think of us.

Baptiste Morizot


To end the eternal power relations between men and predators that lead to massacres, science proposes to draw on diplomacy that governs the world of animals, in other words, using geopolitical conventions to signify their our own boundaries; intelligent negotiation for better living together.

Annie Potts


Emergency services are still polarized on the protection and safety of human life. However, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, which hit New Orleans and surrounding areas in 2005, and after the earthquake in 2011 in Christchurch, New Zealand, attention was also paid to the protection, rescue and accommodation of non-human species. Solutions are possible.

Michel André


Michel André works so that animals living in the ocean are not affected by noise caused by human activities. Sound is one of the principal means by which many marine organisms gather information about their environment and is also for many species, a major means of communication, navigation and foraging, and the noise from human activity interferes.

Lori Marino


Lori Marino is a neurobiologist. She was one of the first to demonstrate self-awareness in dolphins. All of her research led Lori, along with several of her colleagues to conclude that although non-human, cetaceans are ``people``. The result of their study raises all sorts of new challenges ... This is why she is working with colleagues to develop an organization that is ready to bring down the legal wall separating humans and cetaceans.

Olivier Behra


Olivier has worked for 30 years to find solutions so that people and wildlife can live together. Elephants are more endangered than ever, despite the efforts of NGOs. To save these large animals in West Africa, he found an option, which involved thousands of African women in a program for their conservation..

Thomas Hartung


In Constance the best Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing in the world, directed by Thomas Hartung, can be found. Large companies are investing in these new technologies where scientific evolution is associated with ethics.

Antoine Goetschel


If Switzerland is ahead with animal rights, it is thanks to the pioneers such as Antoine Goetschel. He is the first lawyer in the world to defend the animal victims of abuse. His work has enabled Switzerland dignity with the animal in the constitution and the legal function has had an impact on the economy, agriculture and the justice of his country. This is something other countries should aspire to.

Brad Wilson


US Photographer, his work reflects the consideration to be given to the personality and individuality of animals in order to consider them differently.


Companies are entering a new era. Animal protection has become an opportunity and strategy for them. They cannot ignore developments that society now bears on animals, the expectations of citizens and consumers .

In parallel with this awareness, the new place animal’s hold in our lives is also involved in development of any new patterns of consumption and new saving alternative to animal exploitation(clothing, urban planning, food, tourism, agriculture…)


In the US, there are over 1,000 schools that train police and judges on animal welfare.

Many police departments and NGOs have their specialized teams. The result? Before filed without further action, animal abuse today leads to severe sanctions. Europe, Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands have similar laws.



Today the recognition of animal rights is taught.

Born in English-speaking countries forty years ago, the teaching of animal law has spread to universities around the world such as Kazakstan. It now develops spectacularly, driven by a generation of students sensitized to animals. These students will manufacture the world of tomorrow.
