What are animals thinking and feeling?

Everyone should watch this…. From the author of some of our favorites books: “Song for the Blue Ocean”, “Eye of the Albatross” and recently “Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel”, Dr. Carl Safina, President of The Safina Center at Stony Brook, presents:

“What’s going on inside the brains of animals? Can we know what, or if, they’re thinking and feeling? Carl Safina thinks we can. Using discoveries and anecdotes that span ecology, biology and behavioral science, he weaves together stories of whales, wolves, elephants and albatrosses to argue that just as we think, feel, use tools and express emotions, so too do the other creatures – and minds – that share the Earth with us.”
