Join us to discuss these two books by passionate women who have each struggled for their own corner of nature.
White Beech: The Rainforest Years - by Germaine Greer
In 2001, at the age of 62, Germaine Greer bought an abandoned dairy farm in Queensland and set about restoring it to the original rainforest. In this book she describes the slow process of transformation, and how she fell in love with this corner of Australia.
A Hippo Love Story - by Karen Paolillo
When Karen Paolillo saw that the hippos of the Turgwe river, Zimbabwe, were under threat she felt compelled to act. This is the story of how she founded the Turgwe Hippo Trust and the fierce battles she has fought on behalf of these remarkable animals.
