Bergmann, Dr Iris
Iris is researching thoroughbred welfare models espoused by the thoroughbred industry and by animal protection advocates. She uses the thoroughbred industry to draw lessons for the further development and exploration of a theory of interspecies sustainability. This work is based at the University of Sydney and completed as a PhD research project. Iris has a background in environmental cognition and capacity building for sustainability. She cares for two thoroughbreds, two cats, and at times other free-living animals who request assistance, come and go, and sometimes stay.
