Description of Animal and Us Online Course

Animals are a part of us.  We are animals. We live with animals, we tell stories about animals, we sometimes kill and eat animals. They are a part of our history, our myths, our present, and our future.  We would not be able to exist without other animals, and some of them would not be able to exist without us. But some animals are also in danger because of us.
How can we better understand and appreciate animals?  This course will explore the many types of relationships we have with our cousins and discuss what we can do to connect and respect them.  Students will be guided in creating, developing, and presenting a final project on a topic related to the course.
