Always Looking Up: HNC Free Talk Jackie Prime

  • Date: Monday, April 10, 2017
  • Time: 7:30 Pm
  • Location: Royal Botanical Gardens Headquarters
  • Address: 680 Plains Road W, Burlington ON (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Bron
  • Email: brontreg@cogeco.ca
  • Phone: 905-637-7136

Like you, anthropologist and children’s book author, Jackie Prime is ready to implement change to make our world a more compassionate place. Feeling the impacts and experiencing the dramatic social change driven by globalization, environmental change, economic crises, and growinginequalities in basic human rights, we all see that people, animals, and the planet are suffering, but how can we implement lasting change? Is there a way to regain balance and reconnect? Are humans really separate from each other and from nature? Or is there a different story waiting to be told?

With over a decade of teaching and research experience studying the behaviours and cognitive abilities of primates, Jackie’s view on humanity’s connection with nature is radically different from most. Recognizing that humans are not superior to the rest of life on earth, Jackie shares with us in “Always Looking Up” that the foundation for compassionate living exists in humanity’s deep connection with nature.

An engaging speaker, educator, and storyteller, Jackie’s conversational techniques connect with her audiences of all ages at an intimate and individual level, as she fuses her experiences growing up in Burlington with her real life adventures trekking through the rainforests of Thailand studying gibbons and macaques. She leads audiences to feel empowered to become active participants in a global society that respects and reveres nature, human diversity, and our planet, by understanding where we fit within a global system, even on a local level.

One of the few dedicated gibbon specialists in the world, Jackie is the Founder and ExecutiveDirector of Prime Earth Education, a nonprofit organization that combines natural wildlife research, experiential education opportunities, and compassion-in-action projects to educate and empower people to become environmental stewards and humanitarians who understand that we are all connected. She is also the author of the Gibby’s Great Adventure children’s book series that introduces young readers to the world of gibbons and establishes a connection for children with real animals and nature, through storytelling. Postponed from March 13 due to snow storm that day...

Free Talk Hamilton Naturalists Club Bird Study Group All Welcome! Not your average birding destination; but the Tien Shan Mountains of Central Asia act to concentrate the spring and fall migrations along a fairly narrow pathway; it’s some of the world’s best birding. Our travelers: David Brewer, Rick Ludkin and Peter Thoem, were part of a small team of Canadians who spent two weeks last September at a bird observatory in Kazakhstan. This is their story complete with insights into the interesting and delicious food, vodka as a staple diet item, language challenges and the sometimes rudimentary living conditions at the field station.
