NATURE: 
THE ELEPHANT AND THE TERMITE
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 7 PM

From mighty elephants to tiny termites, an entire community of creatures call the waterhole their home. In arid regions across Africa, the waterhole is central to everyone’s life. It is where animals visit to drink, and where some creatures are born and die. Every visit is charged with tension, for a waterhole is the perfect place for predators to wait in ambush.

My Life as a Turkey - Preview

NATURE: 
MY LIFE AS A TURKEY
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 7 PM

Deep in the wilds of Florida, Joe Hutto, wildlife artist and naturalist, was presented with a rare opportunity when he arrived home one day to find a bowl filled with wild turkey eggs on his doorstep. Having always hoped to imprint young turkeys to learn about their world, he went out immediately to obtain an incubator, determined to become their mother. It was an experience that would change his life in ways he could never have imagined. He began speaking with them even before they hatched, and bonded with them in their first moments. Then, day after day, for over a year, he lived as a turkey mother, taking on the full-time job of raising 16 turkey chicks. He learned their language and their ways, and in time, he became about as close to being a turkey in human skin as nature permits. But eventually, his children grew up, and Hutto had to let them go off on their own.
