Sally Henderson is an Australian whose passion is conserving endangered African wildlife - particularly elephants.
In 1990 she joined the elephant research project in Zimbabwe, which inspired her memoir Silent Footsteps, published by Pan Macmillan in 2007.
She has traveled extensively throughout Africa, studying many aspects of conservation and a diverse array of African cultures.
Sally’s new book is Ivory Moon, a memoir set in Namibia (also published by Pan Macmillan).
Our planet and its people are in peril. Diminishing fresh water supplies, destruction of forests, polluted air, species extinction at an unparalleled rate, and a toxic petrochemical environment are all clear signals that things are going seriously haywire. And climate change, the impacts of which are already evidenced at an accelerating pace, threatens environmental devastation on an almost incomprehensible scale. Rising sea levels will overwhelm island states, low lying countries such as Bangladesh, and many of the coastal areas where the world's population is concentrated. Climate change will bring more disease outbreaks, including new diseases and variants of existing ones for which there is no treatment.
This month on the Recovery Zone, Stephanie Potter visits with the Pixie Project, an innovative animal rescue center and nonprofit pet supply store in NE Portland. Dogs are socialized at the on site Virginia Woof Doggy Day Care, and cats doze and play in a large sunny cattery. The center collaborates with animal shelters throughout the region and also provides job training to at-risk youth in collaboration with Outside In. Music by Kevin McLeod.
