I was arrested, inside and outside of Brazil, for wanting to talk about the importance of preserving the oceans

BARBARA VEIGA

We need to talk about the environment

I was born in Rio de Janeiro where, as a teenager, I helped clean the beaches of the city. What began as a dream of a young girl, turned into a life-long drive to discuss and act on environmental issues facing the world.

 

As such, I grew up working with organizations such as Greenpeace, Sea Shepherd, Amazon Watch, Institute Labor Organization and Avaaz.

 

I was boarded by pirates in Africa, survived storms on high seas, sabotaged illegal fishing vessels, and helped eradicate tuna farms. I was a spy, infiltrating the community of whalers hunting the mammals in the Faroes Islands and was arrested, inside and outside of Brazil, for talking about the importance of saving the Oceans.

 

I am a photographer, documentary filmmaker, reporter, sailor, activist and author of the book "Sete Anos em Sete Mares" (Seven Years in Seven Seas). In this book, I tell of my journey across more than 80 countries, and it feels like just the beginning.
