CineScience movie talk: Fly Away Home

Lysanne Snijders introduces you to the research field of animal behaviour where it touches wildlife conservation. The movie follows a young girl, Amy, who raises a nest of abandoned goslings that see her as their mother. Will Amy, just having lost her own mother, be able to teach the goslings to behave as wild geese? Using this family drama, you are invited to think about the need for animals to be wild – or learn to be. And what positive or negative role do we as humans play in this process? An intriguing movie and discussion topic for all ages.

Organised by Wageningen University & Research
