Climate Hero: Nemonte Nequimo, Ceibo Alliance
This acrylic painting is of Nemonte Nenquimo, a leader of the Waorani Nation in the Amazon Forest. I was greatly inspired by her bravery and courage in protecting the Amazon Forest and the many animals who call it home. While researching climate change, I learned that deforestation has a really big impact on nature and can lead to global warming – something that is especially true of the Amazon Forest because of its large size. The efforts of our hero Nemonte have inspired me to protect the Forest by using less paper and planting trees whenever I can.
