Pests: How Humans Create Animal Villains

February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Why do we love cats and hate rats? Why do we adore elephants and fear snakes? Scientist and science writer Bethany Brookshire argues it’s all a matter of perspective, and where we want animals to be. When they’re in zoos, or wild places, we love them and can’t wait to get close. But when animals pop up where we don’t expect, we respond with fear, rage, or simple annoyance. It’s no longer an animal. It’s a pest.

Join Bethany Brookshire as she dissects the dynamic between human and pests, and why some animals earn our love, and others our hate.

Eligible for CPE credit.

Distinguished Lectures are supported by Apache Corporation.
