Scientists Find Animals Have Conscious Awareness

An international group of scientists has declared that animals are just as cognizant as humans.

On July 7, an international group of scientists signed The Cambridge Declaration of Consciousness, which supports the notion that animals and humans are comparably conscious. Evidence supporting this notion is continually rising, and as such, scientists and animal advocates alike are coming together in support of treating animals with compassion. The declaration was signed at the Francis Crick Memorial Conference on Consciousness on Human and Non-Human Animals, an event which featured 15 speakers including Stephen Hawking. In February, a different group of scientists advocated for cetaceans to be endowed with the same rights to life and freedom as humans.
