Simona Gabriela Kossak(1943-2007)

A Polish biologist, ecologist, author, PhD in forestry, and uncompromising conservation activist. Locals called a witch for chatting with animals, living in isolation, and for her raven, who stole gold and attacked bicyclists. Simona believed that one ought to live simply and close to nature. She resided for over 30 yrs in a cabin in the Bialowieza Forest, without electricity or running water. She shared her home with many animals, including a lynx and a boar. She fought for the conservation of Europe’s oldest forests and wrote several hundred works on the behavioral ecology of mammals.
