Earth Scientist and Presenter Anjana Khatwa, aka Jurassic Girl, describes herself as a Time Traveller using clues locked away in rocks, fossils and landscapes to reveal the hidden mysteries and stories about ancient life on earth.
Anjana’s work helps to understand how our planet evolved, changed and survived over 4.6 billion years and how this knowledge can help us prepare for an uncertain future. She weaves her identity as a South Asian woman proudly into her work, bringing an informed and intelligent richness to narratives about deep time, landscapes and natural history.
In this opening talk for SALT+EARTH festival, Anjana will reflect upon the Kent Downs Area AONB and its bid to become a UNESCO Global Geopark connecting across the Strait of Dover with the equivalent landscape in France, the Parc Natural Regional des Caps et Marais D’Opale.
