“You’d be hard-pressed to find a more compassionate person than the founder of Animal Hero Kids, Susan Hargreaves, who will sweetly and patiently describe how cruelty to animals is the source of many environmental ills and then scribble out a vegan shopping list for you to follow. A watchdog of the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, she was an outspoken critic of last year’s bear hunt. Her main gig, though, is harnessing young people’s love of nature and empowering them to become leaders themselves. –BY DEIRDRA FUNCHEON
