Film Highlights Conservationists' Diversity
Those who've ventured beyond the big city bubble know that conservationists don't always fit the "environmentalist" stereotype. "Upending partisan stereotypes about environmentalists, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman profiles land-owning Americans who don't call themselves environmentalists—but are behind some of the most important conservation work in the country."
According to Kristina Kutateli, the documentary "turns its lens specifically toward the Great Plains farmers and Gulf Coast fishermen who rely on the environment for their livelihoods [...] Some 70 percent of voters in Western states, including Montana, Colorado, and Wyoming, consider themselves conservationists."
Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman is based on journalist Miriam Horn's book of the same name.
