What people are saying about Deanna:

     “As someone who agrees strongly with her message, I am impressed with her courage in spreading the message. It is direly needed in Thunder bay and environs. The presentation was hard hitting but also gentle and respectful.  I would endorse her as a speaker/advocate on the matter to any group showing an interest or for whom relevant change in attitude and action is a possibility.”    David A Legge MD, President, Thunder Bay Field Naturalists, Past President, Port Arthur Rotary Club-Thunder Bay

   “Deanna’s presentation on why birds fly into windows was engaging and inspiring. Rarely have I learned about such devastation of the natural world by humans and emerged so full of hope. Let other environmental activists take a page from this eco-optimist’s book!”  Emesha Boyko – Thunder Bay Field Naturalists

     “Your talk “Invisible Barriers: Bird-Window Collisions Taking Their Toll” is most informative and enjoyable and in my opinion suitable for a wide audience.  I think teachers would be most interested in having young people receive this information.  It would raise awareness for future generations.  As a Field Naturalist I very much enjoyed it.”  Kathleen Duffield

     “Wonderful & passionate presenter!  Very eye opening, informative & interactive.  Deanna was a joy to listen to and was able to bring hope and humour into a very sad topic.”  Jennifer Hyytiainen – Community Program Developer City of Thunder Bay.
