Through an international survey – led by Maastricht University, The Netherlands (in cooperation with AnimalWise) – we want to gain insight in the way people treat and interact with animals in their direct environment. We have asked questions on observations of attitudes towards and interactions with the animals around people in China, Japam and The Netherlands. We asked questions about the views about animals in captivity, animals in the wild, farm- and companion animals, as well as questions about food preferences.
