“Olivia Taylor, Honorable Mention, Age 15, South Africa Fundraising for Bearded Vultures Olivia has raised over $10,000 US dollars as well as created two high quality websites in order to save the endangered bearded vultures and launch her new conservation venture. It was while working with Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife’s Bearded Vulture Project, that Olivia was first inspired to raise funds to track the lives of these precious birds.
Raising funds is not an easy task as she soon found out; but with time and hard work she exceeded everyone’s expectations. There were some people who didn’t care about the birds but Olivia, “was able to overcome these obstacles because she feels that making a difference to the environment is more important than being scared and not making an effort.”
Four Elements is Olivia’s new venture that focuses on preserving the diminishing rhino and shark populations of South Africa.” – http://www.actionfornature.org/eco-hero-awards/past-winners/2012-winners
