Roger William Park Zoo's behavioral consultant, Dr. Vint Virga, will delve into the realm of animal communication - from wolves to whales and dogs to humans - and explore the relationships we forge with them. As a specialist in behavioral medicine with over twenty-five years in the veterinary practice, Dr. Virga will reveal key truths of wolf and dog communication and how we as humans can translate them into more meaningful connections between ourselves and other species. Merging slides and a talk with a reading from Dr. Virga's book, The Soul of All Living Creatures, this evening will offer a unique glimpse into the mysterious world of animal behavior. A question/answer session and book signing will follow. This is a 16+ event.
