Our junior member, Aidan Bodeo-Lomicky, has been an active part of VIVA Vaquita for over six years, starting as a junior high and high school student. He is now an adult and is studying for a degree in Marine and Environmental Biology and Policy. At a time when many of our national leaders and president ignore the concerns of the majority of citizens and place close to zero importance on the preservation of nature, Aidan's blog stands out as eloquent and perceptive, showing wisdom way beyond his years. I think you will agree that he is the kind of leader we need for the future. Read Aidan's blog.
