These GreenHeroes speak out for those who cannot speak up for themselves, reaching audiences through the magic of the movies.

Ric O’Barry
Star of the Academy Award Winning documentary The Cove.
Ric started out as a dolphin trainer but when TV’s beloved Flipper committed suicide in his arms he dedicated his life to fighting against dolphin captivity and slaughter.
 
Jane Goodall
The world’s most famous primatologist and one of its most famous conservationists.
Back in 1960 in Tanzania, Jane discovered that chimpanzees fashioned tools to forage for food - forever blurring the line between animal and human. Up until that point anthropologists had defined man as “the toolmaker”. Dr. Goodall went on to fight for conservation of chimpanzee habitats and for the preservation of all endangered species. The Jane Goodall Institute promotes youth activism with its Roots and Shoots program.
 
William Lishman
The ultralight pioneer and inspiration for the Hollywood movie Fly Away Home.
Bill had an epiphany whilst flying amongst a flock of geese, which led to a solution for migratory birds that he has now applied to endangered species, like the whooping crane.
 
Rob Stewart
The award-winning director of Sharkwater.
This paradigm-shifting doc challenges the age-old image of sharks as villains and explains their importance to the planet and to our own survival.
