AbstractHistoryArchive Description

"You're 14. You want to put a stop to the killing of whales around the world, but there are powerful forces against you - business and political leaders, even whole countries. If you could just get 40 000 people to sign a petition. If you could just go to Alaska and address the International Whaling Commission. If you could just address the Democratic Party in Japan and set up an international organisation called Teens Against Whaling. No Way?"

Eco-Warrior is the story of a how a young Indigenous Australian girl, Skye Bortoli, wouldn't take no for an answer, when she knew the cause was right. At 14, Skye went to Alaska, to Japan, created an online community of young people around the world opposed to the whaling industry, won citizenship awards. And the work continues.
