Humans aren’t the only animals who learn languages, enjoy communicating with others, use tools, imagine, and dream. Other animals are much more unique and interesting than some humans give them credit for. We all remember information, play with friends, enjoy being close to those we love, talk about stuff that interests us, and mourn when loved ones die. Some other animals have capabilities that are way better than what humans can do, such as navigating (knowing which way to go), having endurance (being able to run farther for longer, for example), communicating, and more.

Most importantly, we all want the same things: to be free and live in peace.
