There is no question we are harming our planet—grasslands in Somalia have dried up, unable to sustain agriculture; ice floes are thinning and breaking up in the north because of global warming; life-sustaining Brazilian rainforests are being clear-cut and burned at an alarming rate. Exceptional Women Environmentalists profiles ten advocates for the earth—passionate women who work tirelessly on behalf of those who have no voice. From Jane Goodall, famed primate researcher and advocate, to “Amazonian Legend” Sharon Beder, activist for the Brazilian rainforest and its people, Exceptional Women Environmentalists shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things.
Inspiring biographies of ten women whose passionate work makes our planet a better place to live.
