I don't think I'm the first artist to use Anthropomorphism as a tool, for Alien Species in Sci-Fi, right? wotf017

A new paper in the journal Biodiversity Conservation suggests that anthropomorphism -- the attribution of human characteristics to anything other than a human being -- could become a powerful tool in promoting public support for animal conservation. Specifically, the researchers see potential for helping less popular species.
