On August 27, 2021 Meg Lowman was interviewed by The National Audubon Society. The National Audubon Society is an American non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the conservation of birds and their habitat. Located in the United States and incorporated in 1905, Audubon is one of the oldest of such organizations in the world. Here is a snippet into the article:
“Audubon recently caught up with Lowman to discuss The Arbornaut, conservation, and birding in an elevated world so fascinating and diverse that Lowman calls it the “eighth continent.” –
Audubon: What inspired you to write The Arbornaut?
Lowman: I wanted to write a book that might help other women benefit from my own misadventures. I think I spent an unduly amount of time overcoming hurdles, being shy, and not speaking out when I should have, and somebody could perhaps learn from my experiences. I’m the mother of two wonderful sons, and I feel just as strongly about getting boys in science as I do about getting girls. But there sure weren’t very many girls when I was pursuing my field biology career, so I have a special empathy for trying to help girls get ahead and feel more confident than I ever was”.
