Protecting the planet is everyone's work. But we all have our own heros in whatever area we are working. This book brings together the varied stories of the hundreds of movers and shakers that have spoken up throughout history and taken action to defend the world from pollution, deforestation, species loss and climate change.
From Theodore Roosevelt to Al Gore; from Francis of Assisi to David Attenborough - and from hundreds more men and women that you will know little, if anything about. Scientists, artists, business people, priests, lawyers, poets, politicians, activists and more, from every continent of the world. Their work has enthused us about the natural world and warned us that we must do much more to preserve it.
