About This Project

We investigate the communication of those social and intelligent mammal predators: wolves, coyotes, dogs, hyenas. By understanding how they cooperate to hunt large prey, we can learn more about how our own human language and society evolved, as well as developing new ways to live in harmony, rather than in conflict with these wild creatures.

We've organised a symposium of animal cognition researchers, and want help to bring scientists that don't have funds of their own to support collaboration.

Blast off!
