The Library welcomes feline behaviorist Stephen Quandt to share the story of his visit to Chernobyl 36 years after the nuclear disaster to participate in a spay/neuter and research campaign for the dogs that were descended from the pets left behind after the nuclear plant disaster of 1986.
With many personally shot photos and videos he will tell the story of meeting the inhabitants of the mostly abandoned town of Chernobyl City (you will meet 2 squatters, one a hero of the disaster), the totally abandoned city of Pripyat, and the dogs (and some cats!) that he encountered
In this funny, heartwarming and emotionally uplifting presentation, you’ll learn about the incredible animals who survived and Stephen’s work with them. This is a story for all animal lovers and lovers of heroism.
Feline Behaviorist Stephen Quandt, most recently the Feline Behavior Coordinator for the Animal Care Centers of NYC (nycacc.org) and of ASPCA.org, has worked in animal welfare since 2002. He has created this webinar based on his experiences in the Exclusion Zone around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
This is a virtual program presented via Zoom in our Library Meeting Room.
