Anthropomorphism And How It Impacts Our Understanding Of Animals
In this episode, I have a discussion with wildlife educator, Tijana Selak about anthropomorphism and how it impacts our understanding of animals. We discuss the bad (how anthropomorphizing can negatively influence wildlife research and rehab, how its use through social media can be dangerous, and how it can hurt the work that accredited zoos are trying to do), and the good (how it builds empathy towards animals, and can benefit conservation efforts), as well as exploring examples in our everyday lives, how to properly interpret what animals are feeling or communicating, and how misinterpreting behavior can lead to dangerous conclusions.

In the interview, Daniel recounts the rare encounter, when the best time to see whales is in Australia, and advice for anyone looking to capture footage with a drone!
