Today I’m joined by one the nicest guys you could hope to meet, Marc Bekoff.
Marc is Professor Emeritus of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the Colorado University, a Fellow of the Animal Behavior Society, a member of the Ethics Committee of the Jane Goodall Institute and an ambassador for Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots programme.
He has published numerous essays and books for adults and 3 books for children.
In 2005 he was presented with The Bank One Faculty Community Service Award for the work he has done with children, senior-citizens, and prisoners, and in 2009 he was presented with the St. Francis of Assisi Award by the New Zealand SPCA.
Marc has also won several awards for the work he has done with children, senior-citizens, and prisoners.
We talk about......
How he tackles potentially controversial subjects, like trophy hunting with kids.
What school visits and prison visits have in common.
Tackling the issue of war with children.
His work with Jane Goodall and the Roots and Shoots programme.
And why we all need to be more empathetic.
I thoroughly enjoyed my chat Marc, a wonderful, kind and interesting man. I hope you enjoy it too.
