Animal Welfare Scientist Elected Fellow of the Royal Society

Well done!

Science and Dogs

Professor Marian Dawkins, Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, Fellow of the Royal Society

Those who follow research into animal welfare must be familiar with the work of Marian Dawkins. When she began looking into animal welfare the topic was not only unpopular but largely dismissed due to what was perceived as a purely subjective pursuit. Dawkins, more than anyone else change that, and she did it with solid research.

For this and many other reasons I was happy to see her name included in the new batch of Fellows of the Royal Society, an honour well-earned.
