Human Animal Bond Isn’t Species Specific


Dr. Jenifer Chatfield

Dr. Jenifer Chatfield notes that the human/animal bond includes far more than the dogs and cats were typically think about, or even other pets. Zookeepers have a bond with the animals they care for. Farmers have a bond, even with food production animals. And beekeepers even have a surprising bond with their insects. Chatfield is my guest for this interview on my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show.

Chatfield has spent her career working to support conservation of endangered species, even orangutans.

Chatfield asks if you go into a bar, do you want to encounter a gorilla, orangutan or a chimpanzee? She answers that important philosophical question.

And speaking of orangutans, here’s my conversation with primatologist Dr. Birute Galdiaks, arguably the world’s expert on this great ape species.
