Testimonials . . . 



We loved Thor’s presentation.  He is so engaging and entertaining.  He had people laughing all the way through, and there was a good mix of science and amusing anecdotes for our audience.  There was a very lively Q&A and many people stayed to talk with Thor after the program.”


- Sally Lider, Puget Sound BirdFest



Every one of our staff who attended, as well as volunteers and other folks we talked to afterwards, thought it was a wonderful talk.  Obviously Thor is a remarkable story teller, and made an interesting topic very accessible and engaging.


- Amber Burnette, Minnesota Raptor Center
