29 Why Scientific Literacy Matters to Our Animals

This podcast episode is a wide ranging topic on the concept of how understanding how our brain is wired for thought helps the animals in our care as well as conservation. From concepts of how we handle behavior questions we don’t know the answer to all the way to consuming information on documentaries, we look at how asking questions and filling in the picture can help us understand how science works and how the natural world is still very much a part of who we still are, technology and all. This means that whether you play with your dog, train your parrot, go to bird training conference, or aren’t sure where the science stands on the benefits of coffee, there is a way that science works that can help us adjust our paradigm to ask the questions that will lead us to our answers.
