Elephants: We Hardly Knew Them

Virtual Event


Elephants, the planet’s greatest land animals, are fast declining in numbers and could be gone by the end of the century. Will we miss them? What would their disappearance mean to us? In celebration of the new anthologyThirty-Three Ways of Looking at an Elephant, edited by scientific writer Dale Peterson, Trinity University Press invites you to join Peterson, ecologist Carl Safina, Felicia Nutter of Tufts University’s Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, and moderator Allen Rutberg, also of Tufts, as they consider popular conceptions and misconceptions, ancient and traditional lore, scientific knowledge, and the reality of elephant minds and emotions.
