News from the Natural World: Top 50 Humans of the Year - the list is finally in and the animals have agreed on this years, Top 50 Humans.
Number 40 – Rue Mapp
Mapp founded Outdoor Afro because she saw a need for her community to have a deeper connection with nature. She oversees a highly-trained national volunteer leadership team across the US who share opportunities to build a broader community, and promote leadership in conservation. Outdoor Afro has become a cutting-edge network in the U.S. that helps people connect to the black history found in many natural areas while inspiring communities to protect vulnerable public lands for everyone. For her fearless and innovative approach, she truly deserves her place on this list.
