Who Is Allan Savory
Allan Savory has been many things in his life: an environmentalist, an academic, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist and a political refugee, just to name a few. He graduated from the University of Natal in South Africa in 1955 with a degree in Biology and Botany. He believed, as many still do today, that too many animals, especially livestock were the cause of the degradation of our planet. His passions led him to work as an ecologist, working with wildlife populations. In the 1960s he began to see how the grasslands, the wildlife, and people were interconnected and in the 1980s he made a huge breakthrough.
