Becoming Wild: How Animal Cultures Raise Families, Create Beauty, and Achieve Peace  

June 22 @ 7PM ET - Virtually on Zoom


(Please Register Here; Facebook Available Here)


Join Living on Earth and acclaimed author Carl Safina for the latest Good Reads on Earth virtual event.

We speak to Carl about his new book, Becoming Wild: How Animal Cultures Raise Families, Create Beauty, and Achieve Peace.


Some people insist that culture is strictly a human feat. What are they afraid of? Becoming Wild looks into three cultures of other-than-human beings in some of Earth’s remaining wild places.

It shows how if you’re a sperm whale, a scarlet macaw, or a chimpanzee, you too experience your life with the understanding that you are an individual in a particular community. You too are who you are not by genes alone; your culture is a second form of inheritance. You receive it from thousands of individuals, from pools of knowledge passing through generations like an eternal torch.
