Talk, Talk, Squawk!: A Humans Guide to Animal Communication by Nicola DaviesHow does a stinkbug flirt, a bee give orders, or a panda say back off? A celebrated duo is back with a guide to messaging, animal-style.
Humans arent the only creatures who are constantly talking and transmitting messages: animals find all sorts of ways to keep in touch without saying a word. They use colors, patterns, smells, movements, vibrations, sounds, and even electricity to help them identify their own family or team -- not to mention find food and shelter, defend their territory, woo the proper mate, and care for their young. From the chatter of dolphins to the click of a moth, from the stripes of a reef fish to the rumbling of elephants, this funny, fascinating book unlocks the mysteries of how animals talk and squawk to one another-- and how humans try to talk back.
Welcome to an exploration of interspecies communication — a journey of discovering ways to restore a deep relationship with all of life. Human and animal communication creates a valuable bridge between human and non-human animals. By connecting with our intuition, we can engage in meaningful dialogue and remember how to hear the subtle messages from those whose space we share in our lives and our natural environment. Coming from a place of respect and reverence for all life, we can learn to understand our wilder relatives, honour their truths and live in greater harmony. She is based in the Western Cape, South Africa and offers workshops in various locations as well as consulting via phone and email for local and international clients. The goals of any consultations, public talks, animal communication workshops or nature retreats are increased awareness, empathy, compassion and mutual understanding.

Last Updated on July 1st, I was born and raised in Cape Town , South Africa and had a very ordinary suburban upbringing without any special exposure to animals, etc. Is this something that you discovered at a young age, or did you come across this amazing gift of yours later on in your life? In my twenties I decided to live out my passion for wildlife big cats in particular by becoming a cheetah handler , and with this I volunteered at a conservation education project on weekends. When I moved to America, I expanded this into wolf and other predator conservation. Observing and being in close contact with these essentially wild animals probably opened me in empathic ways. However, the so-called psychic experiences began when I was doing my tracking training with the Wilderness Awareness School based outside Seattle, Washington.
