What is anthrozoology? AND: Pet health and toxins

Anthrozoologist Associate Professor Pauleen Bennett

Last month I had the pleasure of interviewing the inspiring Associate Professor Pauleen Bennett - President of the International Society for Anthrozoology and Chair of the Australian Anthrozoology Research Foundation.

Anthrozoology is the study of human-animal interaction, and Pauleen is an inspiring scientist and animal lover. I don't want to give away too much, but she is one of the few people I interviewed who has an explicit plan to save the world - and pets are involved.

For those of you who live in Victoria, Pauleen is giving a series of lectures. I feel like I always come away from her lectures with a plan of action. If you're interested, book here.

In other news, Sydney Morning Herald journalist Lissa Christopher interviewed me for a story about toxins that affect the health of dogs. You can read it here - and even if you don't feel like reading a lot, its worth a visit just to see Nick Glavin's GORGEOUS photo of Rosie the boxer.

  1. Good to know that something is coming to Melbourne, since the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is not. Please correct me if I'm wrong. (I'd love to be wrong on this.)
