At the end of 2023, will Animal Charity Evaluators recommend a charity working on reducing wild animal suffering as a top charity?


Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE) is an organisation that reviews animal welfare charities in order to recommend the most cost-effective organisations to donate to. Charities that they evaluate as having a good track record, room for more funding, and high estimated cost-effectiveness are put on a shortlist of top charities, of which there are currently four.

One of the cause areas that they evaluate organisations working in and consider to be high-priority is reducing wild animal suffering. ACE currently lists two charities that they have considered and that are working this cause area; of these, Animal Ethics was considered a standout charity from 2015-2017, but none have ever been top charities.

At the end of 2023, will Animal Charity Evaluators list an organisation with a review status of "Top Charity" and a type of work of "Reducing Wild Animal Suffering"?
