Guidelines and Publishing Standards

Our digital media company is guided by a robust set of editorial guidelines and ethical standards. Our primary commitment is to journalistic integrity, which includes a dedication to accuracy, objectivity, and fairness in our reporting. We rigorously fact-check all articles before publication and promptly correct any errors that may occur after publication.

In the spirit of transparency, our journalists and contributors must disclose any potential conflicts of interest that may influence their reporting. We maintain a strict wall between our news coverage and advertising to prevent undue influence.

We respect the rights and dignity of all individuals involved in our news stories. We commit to protecting the identities of vulnerable sources and obtaining informed consent from subjects when necessary. All our journalists are expected to adhere to these ethical standards, upholding our mission to deliver reliable and balanced news to our readers.

Animal Information Ethics

In an ever-evolving world, it’s essential that we stay informed and proactive about the diverse species we share our planet with. This is the heart of animal education and conservation, central to our content at Animals Around The Globe.

Animal education is not just about learning fascinating facts about wildlife; it’s about understanding the intricate ecosystems that these creatures form part of and recognizing our role within them. Every species has its place in the natural world, and our articles aim to highlight this, fostering a sense of respect and appreciation for each creature’s role.

Furthermore, our articles underscore the importance of animal conservation. As the human footprint expands, many species face the threat of extinction due to habitat loss, climate change, pollution, and poaching. We hope to inspire our readers to become part of the solution by raising awareness about these issues.

Through engaging articles, we strive to inform and inspire. By sharing the stories of endangered species, we hope to spark empathy and action. By revealing the wonders of animal behavior and biology, we aim to fuel curiosity and respect for the natural world.

At Animals Around The Globe, we believe that knowledge is the first step toward change. Therefore, every article we publish is a small yet significant contribution to a larger animal education and conservation narrative. We aim to inform, inspire and ignite change, as we firmly believe that every creature deserves a chance to thrive in its natural habitat.
