Introduce your little ones to the tree-hugging environmentalist, Chico Mendes, in both English and Spanish!

Chico Mendes, a Brazilian rubber tapper, trade union leader, and environmentalist, became the leading figure in fighting to preserve the Amazon rainforest. He advocated against deforestation, going as far as to peacefully surround forest areas by blocking bulldozers.
