Welcome to Animal Realities. My name is Dr Daniel Allen, some may know me as @Dr_Dan_1 on Twitter. I'm an Animal Geographer who writes about the cultural significance of animals around the world.
As an academic and professional writer my articles appear in BBC Wildlife Magazine, The Field, NFU Countryside, Mental Health Today, National Geographic Kids, Small Furry Pets, and, Practical Reptile Keeping. If its animal-related, I write about it.
My moral compass guides me towards animal suffering and the associated communities who claim to represent animals. Animal Realities investigates, challenges, critiques, and exposes the activities and individuals involved. My aim is to improve animal welfare and make the animal world a more transparent place.
