Kerulos Center research projects further understanding of animals as fully thinking, feeling, and sentient beings. We translate this knowledge into policy, conservation, and in aid of individual animals through education, sanctuary, service, and publications.
Philosophy and Approach
Conventionally, science reflects human interests. Kerulos reverses this tradition by designing research to “see through the eyes of animals”. Animal cultural values and needs determine what we do and how we work.
Our research is based on concepts of trans-species psychology, the new field that articulates a scientific framework integrating conservation with principles of animal protection. Projects are collaborative with the goal of bridging disciplines and communities.

· Wildlife conservation and self-determination
· Trans-species culture and communication
Our work integrates principles of animal protection and conservation to support animal well-being and restore wildlife cultures :
