The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a gift of $170,000 to Princeton University to support the work of Shandong University Professor Guo Peng, a leading animal protection scholar in China, in collaboration with Professor Peter Singer of Princeton University. This award will support the translation of books on animal ethics and farm animal welfare issues into Mandarin Chinese, which could bolster animal ethics in Chinese universities, foster more attention on these issues, and eventually influence policy discussions.

This is a discretionary grant and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
