Carl Safina – We Are Not Alone: What Animals Think and Feel
Does my dog really love me? Carl Safina, the world-renowned ecologist, author and expert on animal consciousness, reveals that we’re discovering many non-human minds are far more similar to ours than previously thought. They possess self-awareness, empathy and communication skills. They imitate, teach, and grieve; they know who their friends (and enemies) are. They seek status. Their lives may follow the arc of a career. Relationships define them, as relationships define us. This intimate journey into the heart of nature inspires us, even more, to protect wildlife habitats and assure the animals’ survival.
Introduction by Joshua Fouts, Bioneers Executive Director.
