Robert (Bob) Hunter
Hunter was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1941 and died in 2005. Hunter was a journalist, storyteller, activist and public relations guru for the international environmental movement. His self termed “media mind bombs” aimed at saving the earth’s environment were notorious. He faced the world’s largest military force while opposing nuclear weapons testing on Greenpeace’s maiden voyage, dyed the whitecoats of Harp Seal pups to make them commercially worthless and stood between Russian harpoons and whales in the Pacific Ocean. In so doing, Hunter inspired a “new brand of personal environmental activism” which he put to good use as president of the Greenpeace Foundation from 1973 to 1977.
