TONIGHT. WE WANT TO PUT THE SPOTLIGHT ON THE BEST ANIMAL CONSERVATIONISTS IN THE WORLD. THE INDIANAPOLIS PRIZE HONORS THE SIX MEN AND WOMEN RECOGNIZED FOR BEING EARTH’S GREATEST HEROES. SO TONIGHT WE WANT YOU TO MEET A MAN WHO’S HELPING CREATE PROTECTED AREAS FOR TIGERS, GORILLAS AND ELEPHANTS AND THE SON OF A DIPLOMAT JOHN ROBINSON HAS LIVED ALL OVER THE WORLD SPENDING MUCH TIME OUTDOORS. WE WERE GOING INTO FORESTS. WE WERE SPENDING TIME CLIMBING MOUNTAINS AND AND GETTING INVOLVED IN NATURE ACTUALLY WAS A REAL FAMILY TRADITION. ROBINSON ESTABLISHED A COLLEGE PROGRAM TEACHING CONSERVATION TO STUDENTS FROM TROPICAL COUNTRIES THEN DECIDED HE WANTED TO DO THAT TOO. SO HE BECAME A LEADER IN USING FIELD BASED SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH TO MAKE PIVOTAL CHANGES FOR WILDLIFE AROUND THE WORLD. ROBINSON WORKS FOR THE WILDLIFE CONSERVATION SOCIETY. WE’RE DOING CONSERVATION ACTIVITIES OF ONE KIND OR ANOTHER BUT WE’RE ALSO MEASURING OUR SUCCESS BY LOOKING AT HOW THE POPULATION WHILE SPECIES ARE SURVIVING. THOSE BERRIES ARE VERY FULL. ROBINSON HAS HELPED ESTABLISH TERRESTRIAL AND MARINE PROTECTED AREAS FOR TIGERS, GORILLAS AND FOREST ELEPHANTS. AND I DO LOVE THOSE WHILE SPECIES BUT ALSO CONSERVATION IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT IF WE’RE GOING TO MANAGE CLIMATE CHANGE IN AN EFFECTIVE WAY. AND THAT’S THAT’S A CONNECTION THAT PEOPLE CAN UNDERSTAND AND MAKE. ROBINSON BELIEVES ECO TOURISM CAN HELP CONSERVATION EFFORTS. YOU CAN LOOK AT A TV DOCUMENTARY AND YOU CAN GET A SENSE OF OF NATURE, A SENSE OF WILDLIFE. BUT THERE’S NOTHING QUITE AS COMPELLING AS ACTUALLY SEEING IT YOURSELF. AND SO ECO TOURISM JUST BECOMES A WAY TO CONNECT PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD TO THE PLACES THAT WE WANT TO
