The Best Animal Mothers: Human and Non-Human

Share this:

When it comes to human and non-human animals, we are more alike than different, especially when it comes to mothering. In today’s special episode, I share my thoughts about what it means to be a great mom and how elephants and alligators both meet the criteria. This episode is dedicated to my own mother.

About Colleen

Hello, and welcome. I’m Colleen, aka The Joyful Vegan, and I’m here to give you the tools and resources you need to eat, cook, travel, and live compassionately and healthfully. 

Donating = Loving

For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant. What you see (and hear and watch) is a one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor has impacted your life in the past year (or the past decades), please consider aiding its sustenance by becoming a patron or by making a one-time donation. Your support makes all the difference.
