TGS welcomes WWF president Yolanda Kakabadse

 

While it would be an honor to witness the World Wildlife Fund International president speak anywhere, the students had an incredible opportunity to have Yolanda Kakabadse speak directly to them about some of the most pressing issues in conservation. After an hour and a half of beautiful visuals and eye-opening reality, many rushed to Yolanda afterward to show their appreciation for her talk. One grade 9 student said,

That was so moving. I think I know what I was meant to be. A conservationist!

Among the many videos Yolanda brought to show the students, the video below stunned the entire TGS community with its beauty and relevance. Along with a new awareness of water, food, and energy plights, she also directed focus to the importance of pollination and the invaluable work both bats and bees do for our planet.
