Describe what this winner does/did:
Growing up without electricity or running water in rural Canada, Robin spent the majority of his childhood in the forests of Manitoba. As the world's largest single land storehouse of carbon and most abundant source of fresh water, the boreal forest of the East Shore Wilderness Area of Manitoba is critical to protect. Robin led the way in a landmark campaign that effectively banned logging in the four of Manitoba’s five provincial parks, protecting one million acres of forest.
