The zoo – no place for animals. The Great Ape Project*

Our new post:

*The Great Ape Project, initiated in 1993 by the philosophers Paola Cavalieri and Peter Singer, calls for the great apes – bonobos, chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans – to be recognized because of their great genetic similarity to humans and their similarly complex cognitive, affective and social ability to recognize certain basic rights that have hitherto been reserved for humans: the basic right to life, to individual freedom and to physical and psychological invulnerability.

My best regards to all, Venus
