Today Time Magazine announced its Heroes of the Environment – leaders and visionaries, activists, scientists and innovators, moguls and entrepreneurs. Among them is Zalul’s Board Chairman Benjamin Kahn. He is joined by environmentalists across the globe including Nobel Peace Prize winners Al Gore and Wangari Maathai, naturalist and broadcaster David Attenborough, and many others.
They range from one end of this endangered earth to the other — from Kenya to Korea, Britain to Brazil, Canada to China. By their words and their actions, by their votes and even their checkbooks, TIME’s environmental heroes have stepped into the silence, and in doing so, have given the earth a voice. It remains for the rest of us to listen — and join them.
Benjamin Kahn (known to his friends as Benji) has devoted himself to the protection of the Gulf of Eilat and the coral reef ecosystem that inhabits it. We have always known that Benjie was Israel’s environmental hero and today we are immensely proud that he has been awarded the honor on a global scale as well.
