Dr. Carl Safina discusses “How Animals Think and Feel” at the University Libraries Presents: Writers Series on November 15, 2016.

In his spirited presentation and book of the same title “Beyond Words: How Elephants, Wolves, and Killer Whales Think and Feel,” Carl Safina shared how he spent time working with researchers who have dedicated decades to studying particular families of wild elephants, wolves, and killer whales. He told the amazing strategies and judgment calls wild creatures have made to ensure their families’ survival in times of crisis.

The event concluded the fall 2016 University Libraries Presents: Writers Series. Thank you to our esteemed speakers for their participation and to all that attended.
