The results are in for our most recent poll! Thank you to those who participated.


Our wonderful community enjoys pet ownership as follows:


EnviroBlog DotNet Poll Results August 2019

In descending order:

  • None – 27%

  • Fish – 3%



Every dog has its day, and we sure love our pampered pooches. Hopefully they are rescued ones:

Next we have no pet at all. Whether this is due to a conscious environmental decision or other personal factors (for example, no pets allowed in current occupation) would be interesting to know.


With 10% “other”, our curiosity is piqued! Guinea pigs, rabbits, snakes… a pig 😉

The lowest proportion is fish, with 3%. Not ideal for “cuddles” and bonding, though smarter than we think: According to Culum Brown from Macquarie University, "Fish are more intelligent than they appear"
