Olivia Bouler

15-year-old environmental artist and activist

Olivia Bouler, 15-year-old environmental artist and activist, was 10 years old when heard about the oil spill in the Gulf Coast. Knowing birds were going to suffer, she decided to give her bird drawings to those who donated to wildlife recovery efforts, eventually raising over $200,000. Since then, Olivia received many accolades for her work, including being named a White House Champion of Change and meeting President Obama. Olivia also wrote and illustrated Olivia’s Birds: Saving the Gulf (Sterling Children’s Publishing). Now a sophomore in high school, she is currently writing and illustrating a graphic novel and enjoys speaking to fellow young people around the country about birds and saving their habitat.
