Can this Shepherdess and Her Sheep Prevent Wildfires?

From PBS Terra.

Today, Grasslands are the least protected habitat on earth. And due to factors – such as development, wildfires, industrial agriculture, and extreme biodiversity loss – our Grasslands continue to be in serious danger. Shannon Waldron has made it her life’s mission to live and work as a nomadic shepherdess in California, where she utilizes sheep grazing to help heal the California landscape.

Women of the Earth is a new show on PBS Terra, produced by Summer Moon Productions, featuring stories of women across America who are leading a new movement to restore and protect the land. By focusing on women in land stewardship roles like farmers and shepherds, the series will explore women’s unique relationship to the earth and their innovative undertakings to heal the earth from climate change.
