Claire O’Neill is the president and co-founder of Earthwise Aware, a global nature conservation nonprofit that reconciles ecological attitude, knowledge and behavior. She’s traveled to more than 30 countries –often in most remote wilderness areas– and witnessed directly the human relationship to nature and its impact. Her work at Earthwise Aware is dedicated to Practical Ecological Literacy & Ethics and how to bring those ethics to the public and organizations that have nature and wildlife as part of their curriculum.
Claire strongly believes that individually and altogether we can be ethically & ecologically engaged –whoever we are, whatever we do and wherever we may be. Ethical Nature conservation is not circumstantial; it is a mindset that you acquire and practice. Once on that path, the great many rewards of being attuned with Nature become obvious. And the satisfaction out of practicing good ethics is almost addictive. Then there is no going back. Her favorite words: “Earthwise Aware —Because I Care!”
