Project Arctic Ambassador, Year of the Polar Bear

Location San Diego, CA

Issue Area Climate Justice/Environment | Education

Ronit, a passionate environmentalist and scientist, was deeply motivated to help individuals of all ages understand the environment and natural world. Serving as the San Diego Zoo’s 2008 Arctic Ambassador for the Year of the Polar Bear, Ronit spent time in the Canadian Arctic studying the effect of climate change on the polar bear and updating students around the world on her findings and their impact.

Through these activities, I found many different avenues by which I can not only make a change but also through which I can inspire and empower others to also make a difference.
