About the author:
I have long been passionate about animals, having worked professionally with them since I was twelve years old, starting in laboratories for medical research. In my twenties, I founded a nonprofit wildlife rehabilitation center in Miami
where my team and I rescued, rehabilitated, and when possible, released hundreds of eagles, hawks, deer, otters, reptiles, and bears. We also provided sanctuary to many other animals, such as tigers, cougars, zebras, giant tortoises, and llamas.

Currently, I work hundreds of hours each year with dolphins and orangutans living in human care. My fifty-plus years of experience working with animals have provided me a broad view of the human impact on animals' lives. Over my lifetime, I have witnessed dramatic cultural changes in our relationships with animals, and as a reflection of these evolving values, I have seen that zoos and aquariums are also moving toward an expanded stewardship for animals and their environments. I have experienced the difference between "captivity" and "animal stewardship," and I hope that the animal stories in this book will add to this important conversation.
