Sarah's books, performances, workshops and classroom resources use the power of story to engage the next generation in saving our planet.
Sarah first went to Borneo in 2012 because she wanted to see orangutans in the wild. While there, she met Wong Siew Te, a scientist who has dedicated his life to saving sun bears and their rainforest habitat. Sarah was captivated by his charisma and commitment and asked what she could do to help. “Do what you do best,” he replied. Those powerful five words changed the trajectory of Sarah’s life.
Sarah spent four years writing Wong’s biography, Saving Sun Bears, which was published in 2020. Then, she had an epiphany – if the next generation don’t love the environment and wildlife, our species might be next to go extinct. Sarah now engages schoolkids through the adventures of Wildlife Wong, (often accompanied by her puppet menagerie), and runs hands-on environmental workshop designed to nurture connection to nature.
