Tess Burrows - Talking to Penguins
Host - Tim Shepherd
Fellowship - Tim Shepherd/Rae Boxall
Tess Burrows was born in Southern England in 1948 and educated at Bedales School. She gained a degree in Ecological Science from Edinburgh University and moved to Australia to grow trees. In 1984 she returned as the mother of three young boys, with the gentleness of motherhood being paramount. In 1990, hit by the realisation that it is possible to help the Earth and make a difference, she started climbing and using this medium for a number of unusual events raising awareness and funds for charity.
