There is a lot of suffering in wild nature: hunger, disease, parasites, predation, competition,… Given the numbers of wild animals and the intensities of suffering, we should not underestimate the moral importance of this problem of wild animal suffering. However, this problem of wild animal suffering is wildly neglected. Most people are against interventions in nature to decrease wild animal suffering and improve worldwide well-being. Luckily, in recent years a few philosophers start to tackle this problem and point at its importance. A good presentation about the issue can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aa6g1y4l8I
At my blog I discuss the moral illusions behind this 'wild animal suffering neglect', the erroneous idea that wild animal suffering is not so bad that we should do something about it: https://stijnbruers.wordpress.com/2016/ ... g-neglect/
