(Linz, June 24, 2013) On Wednesday at 8:15 PM, Terra Mater LIVE invites you to embark on a journey into darkness. A team of biologists and filmmakers spent six months tracking nocturnal animals to find out how they get oriented in the dark. The itinerary includes the impenetrable Peruvian jungle and caves in the mesas of Venezuela. At the next Deep Space LIVE on Thursday evening, Prof. Kurt Kotrschal, a behavioral biologist and director of the world’s only wolf research facility, will discuss the similar traits exhibited by wolves, dogs and human beings.
