Trailer "Animal Social Networks"
Highlighting the social relationships of animals through science and new technologies
Like humans, animals build relationships throughout their lives. And like us, their relationships are useful in finding the best places to eat, rest or meet nice people. For centuries, scientists have been watching these social interactions between different animal species using simple tools. With the arrival of new technologies, this research can push the limits of our understanding and allow us to discover social networks of unexpected strength.
By tracking guinea fowl equipped with GPS collars, we follow the bonds of friendship that form between certain individuals. Watching rock hyraxes in Israel's Ein Gedi Nature Reserve reveals the intricacies of male hyraxes' songs to convey information to their suitors. Analysis of the DNA of great tits in Wytham Forest in England shows the inheritance of personality traits that affects social behavior. Needless to say, the animal world is full of fascinating social ties.
“As humans, we often question our relationships with virtual social networks, but also those with the people around us. We all have a way of managing our relationships. Personally, I never post on social media, but a friend of mine does it all the time. We get along very well, however, even if we don't communicate in the same way. It's the same with animals. Social ties allow us to stay connected." - Ari A. Cohen, producer and director of the series.
