Speaker Introduction:

Joy Knudsen, a Finnish national, joined Toastmasters in 2011 in Denmark and became a DTM last year in Arizona. OP Toastmasters has been her homeclub since January this year. Before retiring she was working as a project manager in the European Environment Agency in Denmark. It opened her eyes for how human activities are impacting the natural environment in a catastrophic way and how we have to do our best to clean our act.

Joy’s speech today is about a rare animal few people know anything about. It was living on this planet already before dinosaurs were roaming around, but during the last 50 years its existence has become seriously threatened.
