How can livestock help save the environment?
What can you do to reverse desertification?
Today’s episode of Body IO FM, we have environmentalist, international consultant, and president and co-founder of The Savory Institute, Allan Savory, as our guest. Allan speaks to us about what holistic management is and how it is helping restore the world’s deserts to fertile lands.
Allan was born in Rhodesia, southern Africa. He pursued an early career as a research biologist and Game Ranger in the British Colonial Service of what was then Northern Rhodesia (today Zambia), and later as a farmer, game rancher, politician and international consultant, based in Southern Rhodesia (today Zimbabwe). In the 1960’s, while working on the interrelated problems of increasing poverty and disappearing wildlife, he made a significant breakthrough in understanding what was causing the degradation and desertification of the world’s grassland ecosystems. He went on to work, as a resource management consultant, with numerous managers, eventually on four continents, to develop sustainable solutions.
