Julia Butterfly Hill brought international attention to the plight of the worlds last remaining ancient forests when she climbed 180 feet into the branches of a1000 year-old redwood tree and refused to come down.
The historic protest to the environmental destruction caused by the clear-cutting of northern Californias ancient redwoods, culminated after 738 days with a negotiated agreement that provided permanent protection for the tree known as Luna & a 3 acre buffer-zone around it. The national best selling book The Legacy of Luna, based on Julias personal account of the Luna tree-sit action, is currently being developed as a dramatic feature film.
Julias courage, conviction and profound clarity in articulating a message of hope, self-empowerment, love and respect for all life has inspired millions of people worldwide.
