About the Author

G.A. Bradshaw is the founder and director of The Kerulos Center for Nonviolence (www.kerulos.org), a non-profit established in 2008. She holds doctorate degrees in ecology and psychology and a master's in geophysics, and has published, taught, and lectured in the U.S. and abroad. From 1991-2001 she was a research mathematician with the USDA Forest Service while holding faculty positions at Oregon State University (Departments of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Environmental Sciences Graduate Programs). She was a Fellow at the National Science Foundation National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) in Santa Barbara, California. Her diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder in free-living elephants launched the field of trans-species psychology. This work expanded to include the study and care of great apes, parrots, orcas, and grizzly bears. Her books include How Landscapes Change (Springer-Verlag, 2002); Elephants on the Edge: What Animals Teach Us About Humanity (Yale University Press, 2009), which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize; Minding the Animal Psyche (Spring #83, 2010); The Elephant Letters: The Story of Billy and Kani (Awakeling Press, 2014); and Carnivore Minds: Who These Fearsome Animals Really Are (Yale University Press, 2017). She has been published in both academic and popular media, including Nature, American Scientist, Developmental Psychology, Journal of Trauma and Dissociation, Ethology, and Psychology Today and been featured in The New York Times, Time Magazine, Forbes, National Geographic, Smithsonian Magazine, Stern, The Atlantic, The Telegraph, and The London Times, as well as on NPR, ABC's 20/20 and in documentary films. She lives in Jacksonville, Oregon, U.S.A., where she cares for rescued animals at The Tortoise and the Hare Sanctuary.
