Heroes of the Environment: True Stories of People Who Are Helping to Protect Our Planet

This inspiring book presents the true stories of 12 people from across North America who have done great things for the environment. Heroes include a teenage girl who figured out how to remove an industrial pollutant from the Ohio River, a Mexican superstar wrestler who works to protect turtles and whales, and a teenage boy from Rhode Island who helped his community and his state develop effective e-waste recycling programs. Plenty of photographs and illustrations bring each compelling story vividly to life.

"Rather than featuring the usual roundup of environmental heroes, this title spotlights 12 contemporary conservationists who are working to fight pollution in cities, oceans, and wetlands, from Alaska to Mexico City. Many of the featured activists are young people.... The powerful mix of personal stories with crucial environmental and social issues will be a call to action for young readers, who will want to move on to the final section: 'How You Can Get Involved.'" -- Hazel Rochman, Booklist
