  • What do this birdwatcher, neuroscientist and the inventor of elephant prosthetics share?

  • They all build unique bonds with animals.

  • High five meet the people giving them a leg up.

  • I have attracted to the blue version because of their beauty.

  • My name is L.

  • Larson.

  • I'm 97 years old or young.

  • These bluebirds are about 11 days old.

  • I've helped over 40 0 nestlings.

  • Every living thing has just as much right to live as I do.

  • I'm a bird watcher by choice.

  • I guess when I retired in the late seventies has 19 seventies I came upon this article in National Geographic and I became aware of the plate of the Bluebird.

  • They're population has been declining and the importance of the nest box to the survival of the bluebirds.

  • And I thought, Well, why don't I try that here?

  • So one of the first nest boxes I set up a bluebird moved into it and immediately Hey, success.

  • I should put up more boxes.

  • Oh, this is the second nest.

  • You can see different material build on top of their We'll go on to the next box now see what's going on there.

  • These nest boxes that I used are ones that I built at home.

  • I came up with a solution of building the box as simply as possible chief to build with just four sides, bottom and a roof anybody could build even kids.

  • Over the years, I have added more than 350 nest boxes out.

  • My bluebird trails cover quite a area in southwest Idaho.

  • Actually, I have got a trail in each of five different counties.

  • I monitor the boxes regularly to record the data of what goes on with the development of the nesting cycle of the bluebirds.

  • I've shared my data with Boise State University, the Banding Laboratory at Patuxent, Maryland, and anybody else who requested.

  • Pretty little Bloomberg.

  • Where do you go?

  • Come back.

  • Come back to me.

  • I'm going, says a bird.

  • Has he flew on high to see if my color matches the sky?

  • I'm gratified to know that I've helped the bluebirds increased or population.

  • I'm gratified to know that through the work I've done, I've inspired many, many other people to help not only bloopers, but other creatures as well.

  • So maybe I've been put here, Thio, help our environment.

  • Mhm.

  • My message you've gotta be active.

  • If you're going to get old, don't crawl into a cocoon because you might not break out of it.

  • So think about the future and what you could do tomorrow.

  • Plan ahead.

  • E work with dogs Thio.

  • Train them to go into an MRI scanner and try to figure out what makes them tick and what they're thinking.

  • E.

  • My name is Gregory Berns.

  • I'm a neuroscientist at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

  • I've grown up with dogs and I've lived with dogs pretty much my whole life.

  • One of my favorite dogs had passed away in the back of my mind, I started wondering, Did that dog love me in the way that I loved him?

  • And that was really the beginning of it?

  • All of these basic things that we've begun to sort out in humans, at least in human brands we want to do in dogs.

  • If dogs can be trained to go into a memory machine, then maybe we could figure out what they're actually thinking.

  • So we have a dog in the scanner that's Katie on.

  • She is a veteran of the project.

  • This is probably about the 15th time she's done this?

  • Yeah.

  • Maybe it just means just having the idea of Okay.

  • Well, let's train dogs to on the scanner.

  • It wasn't immediately apparent how you would go about doing that.

  • And?

  • And MRI scanners air.

  • Not the most pleasant environments.

  • Okay, callous oil girl.

  • Cali is the little black terrier who was the first dog to train for the dog Project E.

  • I built a simulator oven, emery.

  • So this is the simulator that I built here in my basement.

  • Then we started adding in recordings of the scanner noise, which is actually quite loud.

  • We just started working with treats and positive reinforcement to see if we could get her to go into this thing.

  • That actually proved to be pretty easy.

  • And then So what we did was we kind of put out word of mouth.

  • Do you wanna join this project?

  • You want to train your dogs for Annmarie and maybe figure out what they're thinking?

  • The purpose of this is to go through a number of exercise, including basic obedience, as well as how they react toe the obstacles way, hold the trials.

  • It lets us weed out the dogs that we don't think would enjoy doing this one of the benefits then of having more participants as it gives you statistical power, you can start to average dog's brains together and get a better sense for what's happening.

  • I started wondering very seriously if we could really finally answer this question.

  • Dogs essentially like us just for the Social bond, not about food.

  • And what we found wasn't looking at the reward system that almost all the dogs had equal responses, both to food as well as praise and even a few dogs like the praise more Oh, things that we were finding about the dog's brain in many ways confirm.

  • I think what people know in their hearts about how dogs behave and why they behave the way I think about dogs is in many ways, they're the ambassadors to the animal world.

  • They're not that different from many of the other mammals out there.

  • And so I suspect that a lot of what we find in dogs probably holds true for pretty much any mammal was shot, lost a leg and she was two years old from land mine.

  • I thought that I should do something for her doctor Turkey, Cherokee it is working with the world's first elephant hospital, located in Thailand.

  • Since it opened, more than 40 injured and sick elephants have been treated.

  • I'm the first one who invented the artificial leg for the Elefant.

  • Using his knowledge as an orthopedic surgeon, Dr Turk I designed Bush's artificial limb when she was just a baby accounting for the elephants, weight and size.

  • As she has grown, pressure on the prosthetic has increased, causing it to break.

  • So a new one is created every few years.

  • Thistles challenge for me to every time we fix it with improve.

  • It is most study stronger additional in the textbook.

  • Sometimes try and error when she oh bears give her candy and she know where the can is.

  • She used trying to go into the pocket.

  • Oh, he knew E did operation on her food about 15 years ago.

  • But she remember me.

  • She'd like to come closer to me.

  • She showed the site off salute or happy e Think this means so much for her?

  • She can lead a normal life as she should be in the in the middle of a political upheaval.

  • One Ukrainian zookeeper set out to make a difference in his own way on the private estate oven ousted President Sergei used to be a zoologist at the Kiev Zoo.
