Taken together, the data suggest that most furries do not consider themselves to be non-human animals. Given that many furries would be expected to have knowledge about their own fursona species, and given that furries spend time with other furries who presumably know a significant amount about their own fursona species, we tested whether furries know more about animals than the average. We tested this with a item trivia quiz about general animal knowledge. Furries out-scored non-furries on 30 out of 33 of the test items.
Barbara Wilkinson [Barbara Wilkinson received her M. She is interested in innovative educational programs about wildlife for children of all ages and wrote her thesis on multimedia wildlife education. Wildlife education "should result in positive changes in knowledge, attitudes, awareness, and actions toward wildlife" Morgan and Gramann, Feelings and beliefs are generally directed toward decision-making, and therefore are important elements of perception" LaHart, Perceptions influence the way individuals evaluate the external world.
An examination of the sources where children are learning about wildlife can determine whether this type of education is taking place. Most academic sources, in general, focus on the knowledge component of education. Encyclopedias and related books include factual information with some drawings or pictures, but are presented in a rather uninteresting way for children.
They do not educate about real animals in their natural habitats. Newspaper coverage of wild animals, except those focusing on human based events, is minimal to non-existent. Our opportunity for exposure to wild and international animals is limited to visiting a zoo.
Although the primary reason cited for visiting a zoo is for the educational benefit of children, Kellert has shown that the resulting knowledge scores were not significantly different from those of non-visitors. Even owning a pet only slightly raises knowledge scores Kellert,Ascione, Therefore, wildlife-oriented activities appear important in the development of knowledge Westervelt and Llewellyn,LaHart,and Eagles and Muffitt, It may be that regular learning about wildlife in their natural habitat results in higher knowledge scores than more isolated learning experiences such as visiting a zoo.
Learning about animals in their natural habitat may result in higher knowledge scores than would lessons on animals in school, consisting mainly of animals in the classroom or experiments in science class, which can result in limited knowledge about a few specific animals.
From throughknowledge and attitudes towards animals were evaluated using survey and interview style questioning. Responses from children and adults from the United States were evaluated regarding knowledge and attitudes towards domestic and wild animals.
Attitudes were determined by like-dislike responses to a list of animals. The attitudes were broken into categories, described by the following nine types: These attitudes were defined as follows.
Naturalistic is the primary interest and affection for wildlife and the outdoors. Ecologistic is the primary concern for the environment as a system, for interrelationships between wildlife species and natural habitat.
Humanistic is the primary concern and strong affection for individual animals, principally pets.
Moralistic is the primary concern for the right and wrong treatment of animals, with strong opposition to exploitation or cruelty towards animals.
Scientistic is primary interest in the physical attributes and biological functioning of animals. Aesthetic is primary concern in the artistic and symbolic characteristics of animals.
Dominionistic is primary interest in the mastery and control of animals typically in sporting situations.The aim of this study was to propose and validate “a great variety of animals may be released” and “attitudes toward animal releasing”.
To achieve this goal, the self-developed Likert-typed questionnaire and demographic data were adapted. The demographic d. Abstract. The exploration of public attitudes toward animal research is important given recent developments in animal research (e.g., increasing creation and use of genetically modified animals, and plans for progress in areas such as personalized medicine), and the shifting relationship between science and society (i.e., a move toward the democratization of science).
Wildlife Education and Attitudes Toward Animals expect real animals to act as the fictional characters do and therefore "may be disappointed and disillusioned by real animal behavior" (Oswald, ).
