It can be more generally described as the ability to perceive or infer information, and to retain it as knowledge to be applied towards adaptive behaviors within an environment or context.

We humans tend to think that technology signifies intelligence but we need to redefine what intelligence is in order to restore our sense of awe for life which in turn inspires the desire to preserve our own environment. We need to be aware of the destruction we have caused for ourselves and for other species. If we are to broaden our definition of intelligence, then dolphins and whales ought to be considered intelligent too.
