Restraint: Why Animals Avoid Doing Harm

Wednesday, April 20th at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Mark Seth LenderNoted producer, writer, and photographer Mark Seth Lender will share stories drawn from his recent fieldwork in the Arctic, Antarctic, Iceland and Africa.

It is well known that animals hold back in conflicts with their own kind. If they didn’t, tigers, elephants, and a host of well-armed others would long ago have gone extinct. Virtually unknown is the remarkable degree to which this same courtesy – which Mark Seth Lender calls Restraint – extends between species. Mark will share stories drawn from his recent fieldwork in the Arctic, Antarctic, Iceland and Africa that illustrate the principal of Restraint, and will suggest a singular rational for why Restraint exists.
