    "The Social Black Bear, What Bears Have Taught Me About Being Human"

    167 Pitkin Rd, Plainfield, VT 05667, USA
    167 Pitkin Rd, Plainfield, VT 05667, USA
    Ben Kilham will present “The Social Black Bear, What Bears Have Taught Me About Being Human” at the Haybarn Theater (Goddard College), Tuesday November 7th at 7 pm.

    Black bears, thought to be solitary, have a different type of social behavior that possibly parallels early human behavior. They show evidence of reciprocal altruism, matri-linear hierarchy, and a mix of intentional and emotional communication. Bears can live for as many as forty years, which allows them long-term benefits from forming relationships with fellow cooperators.

    Ben Kilham, Ph.D is a wildlife biologist based in Lyme, New Hampshire. His love of and devotion to black bears has enabled him to study their habits and interact with them for more than two decades. He, his wife Debra and sister Phoebe have accepted orphaned bear cubs into their home and enabled them to successfully return to the wild. Ben has been the focus of several news articles and documentaries, including National Geographic’s A Man Among Bears and Animal Planet’s Papa Bear. He is also author of the books Among the Bears: Raising Orphaned Cubs in the Wild and Out on a Limb: Origins of Intuition and Intelligence.

    This is the fourth natural sciences event collaboratively produced by the Marshfield and Plainfield Conservation Commissions, the Jaquith Public Library, the Cutler Memorial Library and Goddard College. Donations at the door will help fund the next collaboratively-produced naturalist event; no one will be turned away for lack of funds. The Haybarn Theater (at Goddard College in Plainfield) is a handicapped accessible facility. For more information, contact Loona Brogan at the Cutler Memorial Library: (802) 454-8504 or info@cutlerlibrary.org.
