Program description:

Stephanie Arne’s passion for dolphins, dugongs, and dragonflies was built into her DNA. From her early years as a kid in the plains of South Dakota, her passion has evolved into a mission to expose humans to the interconnectedness of nature through spirited and engaging storytelling. Steph has spent time with the world’s leading conservationists – at zoos and aquariums, on dive boats in Australasia, amongst the rainforests of Borneo, and in the villages of Africa. Her consistent goal is to understand the big picture of global conservation to empower her audience to be better stewards of our natural world. In this presentation, Stephanie shares her personal story, with an introduction to some of her favorite organizations and heroes that she met along the way, including ways that kids and adults alike can get involved and participate in wildlife conservation projects at a local or global level.
