Born in 1917, Godofredo Stutzin was a cantankerous old man who dedicated his life to protecting animals and the environment. The retired lawyer and winner of Germany's prestigious Federal Cross of Merit was highly skeptical of the future prospects of our natural world. Born to a Jewish father, Stutzin fled Nazi-Germany in 1935 and founded Chileâ€™s first conservation association in the late 1960s. In his 50-year-long struggle, Godofredo was driven by his belief that only a life lived for and with nature was worth living. He died in February 2010.
