Marc Bekoff - Learning About Animal Emotions and Expanding our Compassion Footprint

 

marc-bekoff.jpgThe latest and greatest scientific research clearly shows that animals are smart, emotional, and moral beings. And there are many "surprises." Birds make and use more sophisticated tools than chimpanzees, mice and chickens display empathy, and ravens and other animals show they know what's right and wrong in various social situations. Animals care very much about what happens to them and to their friends and we must too. We need to be very careful when we intrude into their lives and redecorate nature. Rewilding our hearts and expanding our compassion footprint provide avenues for fostering more respect for nonhuman beings and for peaceful coexistence with our animal friends.

This seminar will teach you about:

- animal emotion
- the moral lives of animals 
- how and why they play
- the reciprocal human-animal bond
- why we should care about animals
- animal protection
- compassionate conservation
- what we can easily do to make the world a better and more peaceful place for animals
