Pierce Brosnan

The actor is a committed environmentalist and has been vocal about raising awareness and campaigning against ecologically disruptive projects. He is associated with the organization Natural Resources Defense Council, which successfully campaigned against the U.S. Navy’s deployment of a sonar system that allegedly kills marine mammals and a proposed salt factory at Laguna San Ignacio, which is the breeding ground for the Pacific gray whale. Brosnan received the Environmental Leadership Award by Green Cross International in 1997 and has been an ambassador for UNICEF Ireland since 2001. He is also the member of Oceana’s Ocean Council and serves on the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s board of advisers.
