Emily Hunter is the daughter of late Greenpeace co-founder Robert Hunter and fellow activist Bobbi Hunter.
Soon after graduating from high school, Emily became an activist herself when she witnessed appalling environmental and humanitarian conditions on a trip to China.
This young GreenHero is well-informed on a wide range of issues from pollution to endangered habitats and species protection.
She has participated in anti-whaling campaigns, oil-spill cleanups and projects opposing Alberta’s tar sands, the latter of which she calls: “our biggest environment crime on the planet – our scar on the world”.
Her latest project is a book entitled The Next Eco-Warriors, which tells the stories of this new generation of GreenHeroes.
