This project is designed to create a database of basic demographic and other personality (e.g., happiness, sexual orientation, wellbeing, gender identity) information that will permit the International Anthropomorphic Research Project (IARP; team to contact participants for specific research projects.

For example, we often want to study groups that occupy unique identity markers in the fandom (artists, people with multiple fursonas, greymuzzles, therians, females, LGTBQ, people with disabilities, new fandom members, long-time fandom members, etc).
