The “I Am NOT an Animal!” Symposium

Category: Conference

Why is it that despite the continuing work of animal protection, conservation and ecological groups, the situation for most of our fellow animals continues to go from bad to worse?

And why are we humans unable to come to grips with what’s happening and to change our behavior?
These are the critically important questions we’re setting out to answer at a two-day symposium coming up in February in Atlanta, Georgia.

The conference, entitled “I Am NOT an Animal!”, explores the idea that at the core of our fraught relationship with our fellow animals is the deeply-rooted psychological need to tell ourselves that “I am not an animal!”

Our speakers are leaders in the fields of human-animal relationships, animal legal rights, animal cognition and conservation, and the psychology of our relationship with other animals. They include Carl Safina, Hal Herzog, Steve Wise, Randy Malamud, Sheldon Solomon and Michael Mountain.
