Re: The Alex Foundation

The Alex Foundation has long been noted for animal cognition research. I read the book chronicling Alex when published and was impressed by the attempted scientific rigor in the face of daunting odds.

Dr. Pepperberg's work is crucial yet struggles in the face of deep peer and social unease with the obvious and eventual conclusion: Animals are sentient beings far more capable of thought and worthy of our respect. Sadly, our craving for animal protein drives a huge wedge between tacit understanding and the desire to broadly accept these findings.
