Nat Geo says:
Few people loved the Florida everglades more than Nathaniel “Nat” Reed.
The late 84-year-old devoted his life to conserving an ecosystem he saw as under siege. He was a prolific environmental advocate in his work as a government aide, Everglades Foundation founder, National Geographic board member, and Endangered Species Act co-author, among his numerous other contributions to non-profit advocacy.

Alas, the Everglades is in danger of flooding over with salt water and the Endangered Species Act is under assault. We need more environmentalists like Nat Reed to keep the struggle going.

What an amazing legacy. This is the kind of person whose example, I truly believe, inspires the next generation of environmental advocates who will drive meaningful change, despite the intransigence of politicians!
