The Animal People site comprises two separate sections. The "HTML" or "regular" edition section, which displays pages in the accustomed way, and the "Flashpaper" ® section which presents the paper exactly as you would read it if you had it in your hands. The HTML version serves one article at a time and uses a normal URL. The Flashpaper edition is a "continuous scroll." The best way to decide which approach is best for you is to try them both. In addition, to these editions, the site archives approximately 4000 additional "old style" static pages. We hope you'll enjoy the experience, but if you have any comments, questions, or complaints...let us know.
"The humane cause is about preventing suffering. A species does not suffer; individual animals suffer. Organizations which favor causing individual animals to suffer in the name of conservation should accordingly receive no support from any humane donor." (Editorial 12.03)

PATRICE GREANVILLE serves as Web Producer forANIMAL PEOPLE.
