Stephen Quandt presents The Dogs of Chernobyl--a virtual presentation via Zoom Online
Reigstration is required for this Zoom program. those who register will recieve a Zoom link a few days prior to the event.
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 Stephen will tell 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 they encountered
Stephen will discuss (and show) radiation being detected including on some dogs and the impact of the environment on their lives. And you will even meet some inhabitants of the town of Slavutych which was built in the year following the accident to house the inhabitants of Pripyat after they were belatedly evacuated. It is a story of resilience, hope, life and even heroism. Q&A to follow.
