The Detroit Zoological Society will host a presentation by Dr. Temple Grandin on Thursday, May 4, 2017, at 7:15 p.m. at the Detroit Zoo’s Ford Education Center, followed by a book signing.

In Dr. Grandin’s presentation, titled “Understanding Animal Behavior from the Animal’s Perspective”, she will explain how to think like an animal. As sensory-based thinkers, animals do not think in words, but rather through their vision, hearing, smell, touch and taste. The memories that animals have are specific, for example, if an animal is afraid of something. Fear memories are often associated with something the animal was seeing or hearing when a frightening or painful event occurred.

Copies of Dr. Grandin’s books, “Animals in Translation”, “Animals Make Us Human”, “Temple Grandin Guide to Working with Farm Animals” and “Improving Animal Welfare: A Practical Approach” will be available for purchase during the book signing.

Dr. Grandin’s presentation is open to the public; however, due to limited seating, tickets must be reserved in advance. All proceeds will benefit the Detroit Zoological Society’s Center for Zoo Animal Welfare.
