Tune in to WILDOAK LIVING, the radio program about living sustainably and building community in Mendocino County and beyond.

On Monday, January 6, at 9:00 AM Pacific Time:

What Black Bears Can Teach Us About Intelligence and Intuition

Bears are venturing from their historically isolated ranges and visiting suburban bird feeders and our daily lives. I talk with bear researcher Ben Kilham, author of the book, Out On a Limb: What Black Bears Have Taught Me About Intelligence and Intuition.

Kilham has been researching and living with bears for nearly 20 years.  In the process, he has gained a unique glimpse into the lives of black bears, the nature of their understanding and the potential lessons for our own development as a species.

Because of his dyslexia, Ben Kilham was alienated from the world of schooling beginning at age five and, until recently, barred entrance to the scientific community. With a Temple Grandin-esque mix of persistence and intellect, he overcame the many obstacles imposed by his dyslexia. His research has earned comparisons to Jane Goodall’s revolutionary studies of chimps.Kilham and his work with black bears have been featured in a number of internationally televised documentaries, including National Geographic and Discovery Channel, as well as on National Public Radio.
