35 years after the nuclear accident…
Stephen Quandt went to Chernobyl to participate in a spay/neuter and research campaign for the dogs that were descended from the pets left behind after the nuclear plant disaster of 1986 (and that were not killed by the military). With many personally shot photos and videos he tells his story of meeting the inhabitants of the mostly abandoned town of Chernobyl City (you will meet 2 squatters, one a hero of the disaster), the totally abandoned city of Pripyat and the dogs (and some cats!) that we encountered.
Feline Behaviorist, Stephen Quandt, most recently the Feline Behavior Coordinator for the Animal Care Centers of NYC (nycacc.org) and of the ASPCA.org, has worked in animal welfare since 2002 and has created this webinar based on his experiences in the Exclusion Zone around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
Support for this program is provided by The Friends of Mahopac Public Library.
