A licensed psychologist, biologist and educator, Susan Eirich has taught at universities around the world, worked in maximum security prisons, developed a university counseling center, directed a Nature Conservancy Preserve, and lived in remote corners of Nepal, the Mid and Far East, the Northwest Territories and the Amazon rainforest. Her goal is always to see through other’s eyes as a way to enhance understanding between cultures, peoples and species. She founded Earthfire Institute: Wildlife Sanctuary & Retreat Center in 2000 in order to give a voice to wildlife and help people find their own natural voice. Earthfire’s mission is to help humans change how they see, and therefore treat, wildlife and nature. Susan lives with these animals throughout their lifetimes, developing deep relationships and insights. This makes it possible for her to bring wild animals’ voices into our awareness and into conservation decisions.
