Animal Grief

How animals mourn

How animals mourn - David Alderton

There seems little doubt that animals experience a range of emotions, just as we do; but can they grieve, too? David Alderton’s highly original, authoritative text is superbly supported by a series of stunning and sensitive photographs, carefully chosen to reflect and exemplify the subject matter.
“... with widespread appeal to anyone with an interest in the animal world” – Dogs NSW

“Accompanied by striking photos ... is a text filled with new information about animal
grief” – Marc Bekoff PhD, Prof Emeritus, Colorado Uni

Science is now providing some remarkable insights into animal behaviour, with crocodiles, for example, emerging as devoted parents, and elephants – like whales – able to communicate with each other across long distances by ultrasound, which is inaudible to our ears. There seems little doubt that animals experience a range of emotions, just as we do; but can they grieve, too ...?

Evidence exists that animals do feel grief. In addition, David Alderton – award-winning, multi-million selling specialist animal author – contends that emotions, including grief, can potentially have a positive survival value for a species.

The authoritative, rational text is superbly supported by interesting, sensitive photographs carefully chosen to be reflective of the subject matter.
