On Being

[Unedited] Alan Rabinowitz with Krista Tippett

A profound stutter as a child left Alan Rabinowitz virtually unable to communicate and to prefer animals to people. He became a wildlife biologist and made his name as an explorer in some of the world's last wild places -- discovering new animal species, encountering human communities believed to be lost, and most of all working for the survival of the world's endangered big cats. We hear about his extraordinary insights into the animal-human bond; and also about the dramatic personal odyssey that has brought him across the years to rediscover "the human side of things" -- both in life, and in the evolving science of wildlife conservation.
