Keynote by Dr. Marc Bekoff

Rewilding our hearts: Animal emotions, compassionate conservation, and the importance of individual animals

In his talk Dr. Bekoff will discuss the notion of personal rewilding, how it can and must become a global meme, and how animal emotions and compassionate conservation, for which the guideline is “first do no harm,” figure into what we all need to do in the immediate future.
