The Human Animal: Denial and Reconciliation with Our Nature

I have come a long way since I began writing at the blog, and my perspectives and interests have undergone substantial change. As such, I have embarked on yet another intellectual journey, resulting in my third and hopefully final blog relocation. I have started “Animal in the Mirror," the result of a year’s worth of formal education in Animal Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation at Canisius College that has challenged and altered how I view our relationship with nonhuman animals, as well as the best manner in which to seek to understand them. Carrying on this blog's legacy of examining peculiar aspects of the animal kingdom, this blog’s topics will center around arguably one of the most bizarre behaviors exhibited by the human animal: our attempts at anthropocentric dominion often coupled with a denial of animal self. The focus on this topic will seek to evoke readers’ reconsideration of their attitudes towards the human-animal relationship, as well as foster hope amidst the impending Anthropocene. It is my hope that this blog will serve as a channel for my musings as a rising scientist, and actively inspire readers to live consciously in accord with the conservation and well-being of our nonhuman animal kin. I will be reposting some articles here given that this page receives substantially more viewer traffic. Thank you for sticking with me!
