The Center for Wildlife Ethics (CWE) is a public interest organization that protects wild animals from exploitative agendas by:

  • Instilling an ethical voice in wildlife public policy
  • Challenging state-sanctioned violence
  • Exposing political, corporate and economic interests most harmful to wildlife and the environment
  • Valuing the life of every individual wild animal as well as entire populations of species
  • Crafting and pursuing strategies to empower authentic wildlife protectionists who are traditionally unrepresented
  • Promoting non-violent solutions for human conflicts with wildlife
  • Advocating before administrative, legislative and judicial bodies
  • Monitoring governmental bodies for compliance and consistency with their own wildlife-related laws and policies

CWE pursues only those reforms and objectives that substantively benefit animals and their advocates. CWE does not receive any state or federal funding. Our work is made possible by the support of those who value our tenacity and commitment to animal protection.
