In a two-part programme Earth Report features individuals who have been awarded one of the most prestigious environmental prizes in recognition of their outstanding contributions toward safeguarding the environment – the Sasakawa Prize. Without their work and commitment, an ailing planet would be in a far worse condition. Part one of Four of a Kind featured a scientist and a social entrepreneur. In part two, Earth Report catches up with two more single-minded individuals to find out how they have been making a difference – Wangari Maathai who founded Kenya’s Greenbelt Movement and stood up to corruption at time when protecting trees was a dangerous business in a one party state; and Dener Giovanini continues to risk his life, fighting animal smugglers and their multimillion dollar trade in Brazil.
