Drink the Wild Air


Sacha Dench

Season 1, Ep. 5

Sacha Dench made headlines around the world in 2016 when she took to the air in a paramotor to follow the migratory route of the Bewick’s swan. Her extraordinary journey was as scientifically important as it was spectacular – she was dubbed the "Human Swan" – and in 2020, as a result of her work, she was made UN Ambassador for Migratory Species. In this episode she talks about how, as Co-Founder and CEO of Conservation Without Borders, she continues to carry out critical work raising awareness about climate change. Among other things she tells the story of how last year she made headlines again when she followed the migratory route of the osprey from Scotland down to Guinea in West Africa.
