These superheroes are fighting against human suffering and pollution, and to keep the desert tortoise alive. Now the environmental avengers remove their masks.
These young alumni from USC Dornsife’s dynamic Environmental Studies Program pursue a host of professional paths — from law to medicine, business and conservation — and are united by their shared interest in making the world a healthier place for all. Whether it’s briefing Gov. Jerry Brown on issues or rising at 3 a.m. to beat the punishing desert heat to track threatened desert tortoises, these heroes are fighting the good fight.
