There's a lot of animal media on the internet. 

We're here to yell at the bad stuff, explain the confusing bits, and pull out the cutest, coolest, most unknown content - all while putting animal behavior in its own proper context. 

Why Animals Do The Thing is a freelance science education effort composed of two partner websites: a tumblr blog that does informal education and encourages community discourse and this website for hosting in-depth articles on animal-related topics.
