Animals as Teachers

There are many reasons for you to get better acquainted with Stanley Park's fauna.
There's beauty, magic, and mystery in their worlds and they have special 'knowledge'
of this place that we are only beginning to imagine and appreciate.

One of the reasons I come to Stanley Park is to be reminded that
of the ten million plus species of animal life on the planet,
we, the species Homo sapiens, are only one - and that why,
if we think we are so important, are there so many, many, others?
