What Humans Can Learn from Animals with Carl Safina–Episode 17

Carl Safina is a pioneer when it comes to understanding the hidden—and instructive—lives of animals. In this interview about his latest book, “Becoming Wild: How Animal Cultures Raise Families, Create Beauty, and Achieve Peace,” he talks about what we can learn about being human from chimpanzees, parrots, pigeons and whales, much of it relevant to today’s headlines.
 
Safina’s other works include "Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel,” "Song for the Blue Ocean,” "Eye of the Albatross,” "The View From Lazy Point: A Natural Year in an Unnatural World" and others. He is the founding president of the Safina Center and is the inaugural holder of the Carl Safina Endowed Chair for Nature and Humanity at Stony Brook University. Safina hosted the PBS series "Saving the Ocean with Carl Safina.”
 
Joining host Joseph Grove are Wayne Pacelle, the founder of Animal Wellness Action, and Marty Irby, its executive director and chief lobbyist in D.C.
