The science of our similarities
For many of us, the connection we feel to animals—those that roam the earth and those that sleep at the foot of our beds (or on top of our heads)—is often as strong as the bonds we have with our fellow humans. We look to the natural world and into the eyes of our favorite companions for answers about what makes us all tick. This fascination has lead to groundbreaking research and heartwarming stories of the ties that bind us and just how much we have to learn from the cuddly, slimy, adorable, and frightening creatures who share our planet.
