Pierce Brosnan, his known as James Bond. Pierce works as an actor, film producer, and activist. In addition as a talented actor, Brosnan also very concerned about the environment and how to save the earth.
The Irish actor was born May 16, 1953, in Drogheda, County Louth, Ireland. Graduated from the Drama Center in 1975, Pierce began his career as acting stage assistant manager at the York Theater Royal to make his debut in Frederick Knott’s drama Wait Until Dark. His name becomes more famous when playing the main character in the James Bond movie series. Until now the name of James Bond is still attached to him.
This handsome, brown-haired man cares deeply about what is happening on earth and is determined to fight for the cause he believes in. While fighting for forests and oceans, Pierce often tripped over politics from time to time. He is even labeled an extreme environmental activist, but he is proud of that label.
Pierce’s concern is not only devoted to nature, he has been an ambassador for UNICEF Ireland since 2001. Since childhood, Pierce’s environmental awareness has begun to take shape. When he was 9 years old, he began to realize about nuclear disarmament when world condemnation of US nuclear test 1962 in Nevada became the main focus of the international news.
Throughout the 1990s, Pierce participated in a news conference held in Washington, D.C. to help Greenpeace draw attention to environmental issues. His support for Greenpeace’s protests against the French nuclear test program was manifested in the boycott of the French GoldenEye movie premiere.
Not only Pierce, his wife also had the same interest as him. The couple worked with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) from 1997 to 2000 to stop applying for a salt plant in San Ignacio Lagoon.
Already many things are done by Pierce and his wife to the environment. In their personal website, there are details of what they have done to protect the earth. From his web, we can see how this volunteer couple always supports many important environmental problems from time to time. Their contributions are poured into environmental issues such as marine mammals and the protection of wetlands, clean water, and fresh air. They have won many awards and not a few also earnings earned for his contribution to the earth.
In the case of Cabrillo Port Liquefied Natural Gas’s long-distance natural gas transport facility, Pierce joined together with Halle Berry, Cindy Crawford, and Daryl Hannah to fight the proposed procurement facility on the Malibu coast and they won it. The State Land Commission finally refused the rental fee to build the terminal. In addition, Pierce Brosnan is also listed as a member of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society Advisory Board. In 2004, Pierce was awarded the title of ‘Environment Activist with the Best Performance’ by the Sustainable Style Foundation.
There are many ways that Pierce does to show his concern for the environment, one of which is to raise money for charitable purposes through the sale of his paintings. Pierce had been in art education and had learned about painting.
After a while, he finally went back to painting lessons and the sale of his giclee paintings was donated to a trusted charity for the environment, as well as maternal and child health. Also, Pierce ever hosted Live Earth event in London, an event created to raise environmental awareness through entertainment media.
There are many more efforts by Pierce to save the earth. If you want to follow in his footsteps to contribute to nature, the simple thing to do is to start using a disposable meal wrap and avoid plastic shopping bags. With just simple things like that, we will help to reduce the pollution of plastic waste that is very disturbing to the earth. This little movement will help Pierce Brosnan also fight for natural rights of the environment.
