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.”

HOI the Hawaiian Monk Seal


Hawaiian Monk Seal meets Manta Rays from Manta Ray Advocates Hawaii.

“Waimanu – a Hawaiian Monk seal – was seen at the Manta Ray Night Dive a few times over the past few weeks, but always on the dark outskirts. Last weekend, we captured NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN footage of Waimanu swimming through the dive site while the Manta Rays were feeding on plankton.

The Hawaiian Monk seal is considered a critically endangered animal with a population of approximately 1100. Most Hawaiian Monk Seals live around the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands; only a few populate the main Hawaiian Islands. Three monk seals inhabit the Big Island and Waimanu – the only female – is currently pregnant.”
