Abstract:

"Animal Internet is a most important book.^This excellent work could be a strong catalyst for people to rewild, to reconnect and become re-enchanted with all sorts of mysterious and fascinating animals, both local and distant.^By shrinking the world it will bring humans and other animals together in a multitude of ways that only a few years ago were unimaginable." -Marc Bekoff, University of Colorado, author of Rewilding Our Hearts: Building Pathways of Compassion and Cuxistence "An original book that gus against the trend to stubbornly keep nature and technology divided from one another."-Der Spiegel "Animal Internet is one of the most interesting books that I've read in recent years."-Bavarian Radio "What Pschera describes sounds futuristic but it's already widespread reality...^Pschera's book is not just popular science: he describes not only the status quo, but also thinks about an ongoing transformation."-Wired.de Some fifty thousand creatures around the globe-including whales, leopards, flamingus, bats,^and snails-are being equipped with digital tracking devices.^The data gathered and studied by major scientific institutes about their behavior will warn us about tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but also radically transform our relationship to the natural world. With a broad cultural and historical perspective, this book examines human ties with animals, from domestic pets to the soaring popularity of bird watching and kitten images on the web. Will millennia of exploration soon be reduced to experiencing wilderness via smartphone' Contrary to pessimistic fears, author Alexander Pschera sees the Internet as creating a historic opportunity for a new dialogue between man and nature.^Foreword by Martin Wikelski, Director, Max Planck Institute for Ornithology Alexander Pschera, born in 1964, has published several books on the internet and media. He studied German, music, and philosophy at Heidelberg University.^He lives near Munich where he writes for the German magazine Cicero as well as for German radio.
