Webinar: The Dogs of Chernobyl: A Story of Hope and Resilience

In 2019 I was on a spay/neuter and research campaign for the dogs and cats that descended from the pets left behind after the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident. This rare look at Chernobyl, the dogs and people who continue to live there, features my photos and videos from athe abandoned towns of Pripyat and Chernobyl City. A story of unexpected resilience, hope, and heroism, it is at times poignant, emotional and ultimately hopeful.

My Calendar is below. All times are Eastern.
