Forest protection activist Odigha Odigha of Cross River State, Nigeria, won unprecedented protections for Nigeria's last remaining rainforests. Odigha was instrumental in creating a statewide logging moratorium and has educated hundreds of forest communities on sustainable forestry practices. Through his proposal for the country's first Forestry Commission's mandate and structure, Odigha's biggest achievement has been getting civil society and forest community representation in all forest management policies.

The Goldman Environmental Prize is the world's largest prize for grassroots environmentalists. Each of the winners, chosen from the planet's six inhabited continental regions, demonstrate exceptional courage and commitment, often working at great risk to protect our environment. In the process, they inspire the rest of us to do the same.
