TEDxAmazonia - Deise Nishimura | She remembers the day she fought with an alligator - Nov.2011

The biologist Deise Nishimura used to research dolphins in the Amazon reserve of Mamirau?, where there are 90 alligators for every human being. On the New Year's Eve of 2010, while she was cleaning a fish in her houseboat a huge alligator surprised her and dragged her into the water. Deise fought for her life and won. She lost a leg, but managed to drag herself up to the radio and called for help. She is eager to return to the Amazon and resume her search. --- About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
