This chapter focuses on another threat that ecological restoration projects are facing, namely the threat to animal welfare and flourishing. It highlights virtue ethics as a promising alternative to the traditional animal welfare and animal rights approaches and discusses three theories within virtue ethics: The theory of Alasdair MacIntyre on the relationship between virtues and practices; the ethics of care of Carol Gilligan, Joan Toronto, and many others; and the capability approach of Martha Nussbaum.

Keywords:   ecological restoration, animal welfare, animal rights, Alasdair MacIntyre, Carol Giligan, Joan Toronto, Martha Nussbaum
