'Wonder' at Tedx Truro
Updated: Nov 8, 2018
Welcome to @sacha_dench, she is a conservationist and adventurer. Despite being terrified of flying before she embarked on her epic paramotor journey, she flew the 7000km journey from the high arctic to the UK following the migration of wild swans. Her mission was to find out why the number of birds was declining so fast and to create a wave of support for saving them from the people she met along their flyway.
She is the first woman for 50 years to win the 2018 Britannia Trophy for the most meritorious performance in aviation, which was previously awarded to @sir.richard.branson and the @theredarrows . She was also named a Woman of the Year 2017 and won the Environment Campaign of the Year 2017. .
