Speaker Name(s): Suzanne E. MacDonald, Ph.D.
Description: This talk takes you on a journey inside the secret lives of animals, from elephants in Kenya, to tigers and polar bears in the zoo, to computer-loving orangutans. Nonhuman animals 'speak' through their behaviour, and through careful observation we can get a glimpse of how they view the world. My research is designed to learn how different species think, and I will discuss how we can use that knowledge to enrich their lives, both in captivity and in the wild.
