Tl;dr - This is a curated and useful list of farmed animal advocacy resources that came out in 2023. We (Impactful Animal Advocacy) sent this compilation out in our free bi-weekly newsletter and thought it might be helpful to others in the EA community.

There is is not a comprehensive collection of all resources, but if we missed any that you found significant from 2023, feel free to add as a comment.

Enjoy and here is to even more impact for the animals in 2024!🎉

Over the past 12 months of curating Impactful Animal Advocacy (IAA) newsletters, we’ve noticed several trends. Here are two that are prominent in our collection of 2023 resources:

🏗️ Movement infrastructure

In the animal advocacy movement’s growth this year, we’ve seen an increase in services provided directly to animal advocates or organizations. There has been so many new initiatives that we developed a Meta resources wiki to keep track of them all! This expansion reflects a recognition of the diverse needs within the community and how projects can benefit from support and area specialization. Here are a few categories of increased infrastructure:

📏 Refining how we measure and compare across species

Given the large number of possible ways to help animals, selecting the most impactful approach can be challenging. This year, we've witnessed a increase in research accessibility and applicability for advocates. This is not just about providing information — it's about helping us integrate this knowledge into practical strategies. As a result, advocates may be better equipped to make informed decisions on where to focus their efforts across different species and geographic regions. Here are a few projects we’ve seen trying to answer key questions:
