Last week we told you about a new monument being built in honor of Friends of the Everglades founder Marjory Stoneman Douglas. This week, we’re thrilled to share the first episode of a complementary animated mini-series produced by Hulu that tells the stories of the women that inspired the monuments.
This episode, dedicated to Marjory, chronicles her life as a writer, conservationist, and “professional nuisance” as she battled powerful industries and public perception to preserve and protect the vital Everglades ecosystem.
In the end, she knew that one voice was not enough. Marjory made sure to preserve the legacy of environmental advocacy she pioneered, founding Friends of the Everglades in 1969 and inspiring thousands to step up as voices of the Everglades in her footsteps. It’s work that we’re proud to carry on today.

We hope you enjoy it! And if you’re so inspired, please consider making a donation to Friends of the Everglades in honor of Marjory’s memory today!
