This planet patrol toils diligently to combat forces working against environmental health. Recent 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.
