Jennifer Verdolin
Exploring Our Wild Connection

How understanding other species can improve our lives (and theirs).

How can understanding other species make a difference in our lives? 

Whether it's trekking through the Impenetrable Forest in southwestern Uganda studying the social behavior of mountain gorillas or documenting culture in prairie dogs, animal behaviorist and conservation biologist Dr. Jennifer Verdolin believes that our connection to each other depends on our relationship with other animals. Whether it's writing about it, teaching it in classrooms, or talking about it on stage or on her podcast, Jennifer introduces audiences to all that we share with other species, from the mundane to the complex. She invites you to consider that we are all more similar than different.
