This event starts in
The Intuitive Pet Parent hosted by Jessica Ardeal of BodyClearing.com is an online virtual event where heart centered experts reveal how to resolve energy imbalances, correct behavioral concerns and enhance the spiritual bond with your pet family members. Jessica Ardeal features Dr. Marc Bekoff! What animal would you most want to be? Having the opportunity to speak with the man, the legend, Dr. Marc Bekoff is an honor I'm delighted to share with you. His whole body of work over the course of his career could become its own educational curriculum, in fact, I think it's time we overhaul our educational systems and integrate some of his work here and abroad. Care to join me and make that happen!? Marc Bekoff is professor emeritus of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and is a Fellow of the Animal Behavior Society and a past Guggenheim Fellow. In 2000 he was awarded the Exemplar Award from the Animal Behavior Society for major long-term contributions to the field of animal behavior.

Marc is also an honorary member of Animalisti Italiani and Fundacion Altarriba.
