Writer, Environmental Defense Fund
Miriam Horn is a writer at the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). Horn’s second book on critical issues tackled by EDF came out in September 2016; a feature documentary based on the book premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and aired worldwide that summer on Discovery. Called Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman, Conservation Heroes of the American Heartland, the book profiles a Montana cowboy, Kansas wheat farmer, Louisiana shrimper, Gulf of Mexico red snapper fisherman, and the CEO of a barge company that navigates the inland waterways that connect them all —leaders of an unsung movement to protect the nation’s wildlife, rangelands, soils, wetlands and marine ecosystems. Her previous book on clean energy technologies, co-authored with EDF president Fred Krupp, was a New York Times bestseller and also a Discovery documentary.
