Party Animals

A discussion exploring new evidence that animals, like humans, enjoy themselves. The event will debunk the popular perception that life for animals is a continuous struggle for survival. It will discuss how creatures from birds to baboons may feel good thanks to play, sex, touch, food, comfort, aesthetics and more. It will also answer the important ethical question: what does this mean for mans relationship with animals?

Combining rigorous evidence, elegant argument and amusing anecdote, leading animal-behaviour researcher Dr Jonathan Balcombe, from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, will be joined by Dr Gill Langley, from the Dr Hadwen Trust, and other experts to debate the issue.
