Environmentalists Murdered for Protecting the Amazon

Brazilian environmentalists Jose Claudio Ribeiro da Silva and his wife were killed in an ambush in an Amazonian nature reserve in 2011. These murders are but two examples of many around the world. Like so many other brave souls, Ribeiro da Silva and his wife were true heros who persevered despite the dangers of protecting the Amazon.
