The Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour (ASAB) is a learned society founded in 1936 to promote the study of animal behaviour. ASAB cares about animals and our Ethical Committee promotes the ethical treatment and conservation of animals.

We encourage the teaching of animal behaviour in schools, colleges and universities through the work of our Education Committee.

By studying animal behaviour we learn about ourselves, other animals and the world we live in. Do science, join in, have fun!
