Sean Dooley is the National Public Affairs Manager for Birdlife Australia. He has seen firsthand the devastating fires that Americans have been following with great concern in the media. According to Sean, the extent of loss is now 12.2 million hectares, which equates to more than 30 million acres—an area larger than the state of Pennsylvania! He took time in January to talk with host Wendy Clark about what it’s like to be a conservationist in Australia at this critical time; how the birds and bird habitats are faring with the destruction; and most importantly, how Americans can provide real support for this country in crisis.
