Rhett Butler TEDxYouth

You might not have heard of Rhett Butler, but if like me you’re interested in environmental and conservation issues you’ve probably read something he’s written. Rhett Butler is the founder of Mongabay, arguably the top independent environmental news website globally. The cool thing is though, that he’s a pretty down to earth ordinary guy, motivated by having seen wild places first hand.

Here’s a great video he did for TEDxYouth, and if you havn’t already: visit Mongabay.
