Amelia Kinkade explains how she talks to animals

Renowned animal whisperer, Amelia Kinkade is in South Africa, running a two day conference teaching humans how to better communicate with animals.

Kinkade spoke to 702 host, Azania Mosaka that the conference is aimed at empowering animal owners to communicate more effectively with their animals (no matter the sizes) and also improves human communication.

Through her work, she says she has learned from animals how they live in harmony with nature and have a way of communicating with each other.

Her work requires being respectful with her interactions with animals and Kinkade explains that she's always aware of the dangers surrounding her.

It's an ability to tune in and the converse- what is this animal thinking, what are they feeling, what are they needing?
