As part of U3A Noosa’s Friday Talks Programme Sarah gave a presentation based on her personal journey raise awareness of the plight of Borneo’s Sun Bears. Her material resonated with the audience on a number of levels helped by her easy and engaging presentation style. The audience left with a clear understanding of the problem and a silent resolve to help spread her message, particularly to their grandchildren.
