Why Animals Do The Thing
ANTI-ANTHROPOMORPHIC, ACTUAL ANIMAL BEHAVIOR
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 a privately owned site that hosts in-depth articles on animal-related topics.
Rachel is an educator and animal science writer. With prior professional experience in zookeeping, visitor education, shelter behavior management, and more, she works to translate pertinent field-specific knowledge into comprehensive explanations about current animal related topics.
