‘We rarely pause to consider what animals think or feel, or how their inner lives resemble our own. Tom Mustill’s fascinating and deeply humane book shows us why we must do so – and what we, and the planet, could stand to gain by it’ – Greta Thunberg 

A life threatening encounter with a whale whilst on a kayak led to biologist and wildlife filmmaker Tom Mustill’s thrilling scientific investigation into the pioneering world of animal communication, where big data and artificial intelligence are changing our relationship with animals forever. Come and hear about his findings. 

In conversation with India Bourke, New Statesman’s environment correspondant.
