We Are Not Alone: What Animals Think and Feel
Feedback form is now closed.

Introduction by Joshua Fouts, Bioneers Executive Director

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.
