One year on from the creation of the UK’s Animal Sentience Act, Life will be exploring the concept of sentient life and will be delving into the implications of granting an animal ‘personhood’ status.
Join us at our Science Speakeasy as we chew the cud over questions like: can a cat have a sense of humour? Does a chicken have a best friend? Can you hurt a hamster’s feelings?
Should there be a sentience hierarchy or should dogs and ducks share the same pecking order? Join us as we debate until the cows come home – or until we run out of terrible puns.
