Invited by Google to give a presentation on his work, ocean conservationist and MacArthur Fellow, Carl Safina, discusses animal thought in his book, Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel. Safina shares the similarities between our minds and theirs, including the capacity for self-awareness, empathy, and grief. He presents his case for thinking about animals differently.
Safina's findings are surprising and offer new reasons why wildlife and nature conservation should be important to everyone.
