Who Cares Wins Presents Nemonte Nenquimo, the first in our special Extraordinary Women episodes.

Nemonte Nenquimo is a Waorani woman, mother and leader, who has dedicated her life to the defence of Indigenous ancestral territory and cultural survival in the Amazon rainforest. She is the co-founder of the Indigenous-led nonprofit organisation Ceibo Alliance and its sister organisation Amazon Frontlines, the first female president of the Waorani organisation of Pastaza province, winner of the Goldman Environmental Prize for Central and South America, the United Nations’ Champions of the Earth Award, BBC 100 Women of 2020 and TIME 100 most influential people in the world. 
And the ultimate environmental award… Nemonte had a brand new Ecuadorian Lizard species named after her.
