Challenging Times: Hope for Plants and Animals

This course is a follow-up to a Spring 2022 Osher course in which we explored what science is learning about what animals, plants and fungi can know, feel and do, and how that knowledge is changing our species’ relationship with them. We will delve deeper into the current challenges to several kinds of living things (and the challenges some of them present to humans) and learn about some human efforts to promote the well-being of the creatures who share our planet. Together, we’ll take a closer look at algae, insects, reptiles and amphibians, birds and the oceans. You do not have to have been a participant in the Spring 2022 Osher course to understand and benefit from this course.

Dates and locations to be announced.
