Sperm Whales and Communicating with Animals - S1/E30 Reefs and Reptiles

    • Pets & Animals

This is the final episode of Reefs & Reptiles Season 1.  What if you could communicate with your pets?  What if we could "talk" to whales?  How would that shape our view, not only as pet keepers, but also as citizens of the planet earth?  In this episode, I'm going to explore that topic.  It is a little "out there" but I do think that communicating with animals will be the next big breakthrough for humans.  Scientists are working on understanding the codas (series of clicks) that sperm whales use to communicate with each other.  If we were able to speak with them, it could be the kind of breakthrough that causes a paradigm shift in the way we think about our planet.  I am hopeful that one day we will be able to better understand the organisms that our policies and decisions impact.  I think understanding animals better would cause us to take better care of them and of the planet.
