Highlands Nature Center hosts event
Some animals we love, some we hate, and others we eat. The emerging field of Anthrozoology is the study of the relationships between humans and animals. In addition, humananimal relations, and the psychology behind how we feel about them, are the focus of Dr. Hal Herzog’s book, “Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It’s So Hard to Think Straight About Animals.”
The Highlands Biological Foundation will host Dr. Herzog on Thursday, Sept. 1, at 6 p.m. in The Highlands Nature Center as the closing event of its “Think About Thursdays” summer series. Dr. Herzog, Professor of Psychology at Western Carolina University, has investigated the complex psychology of human interactions with other species for more than 20 years. With an expert in the field who has a great sense of humor, this Zahner Conservation Lecture promises to be beyond worthwhile.
