‘Our Wild Calling’ Examines The Benefits Of Connecting With Animals
Tuesday, December 17, 2019
It's been nearly 15 years since San Diego author Richard Louv coined the term nature-deficit disorder, which inspired a movement to connect children with nature.
In his latest book, Louv continues to build on those themes by exploring the benefits of connecting with animals. In "Our Wild Calling," Louv documents how animals can transform one's physical, mental and spiritual well-being. He will be speaking about his book Tuesday at Casa del Prado in Balboa Park.
Louv joined Midday Edition on Tuesday to discuss the relationship between humans and animals and what people can do to connect with animals in their everyday lives.
