Der er mange (ubesvarede) spørgsmål om hvordan dyr oplever deres verden og hvad det betyder for hvordan vi skal behandle dem; hvad enten det er i fangenskab eller i forvaltning af vildtlevende bestande.
Sabrina Brando og Gordon M. Burghardt giver en introduktion til dyrs opfattelse af verden; kognition og emotioner, med udgangspunkt i forskning og praktiske erfaringer.
Jens Olesen, biolog og tidligere vært på DR, vil facilitere en spændende aften.
Oplæg og debat er på engelsk.
