Ruby's mum says that from a very young age, her daughter has been influenced by people like Attenborough, Tyson and Suzuki. And now she has a new friend in Dr. Atwood.
"She is an avid reader of environmental newsletters and non-fiction books about wildlife," Natalie told this reporter. "She was appalled to find out that five animals have been declared extinct since she was born and has been determined to make a difference ever since."
In between school -- Ruby is currently in Grade 1 -- saving the planet with YouTube videos and making her parents laugh, she enjoys spending time with her dad and mum, family and friends at their home on Tharawal country.
I am so happy you saw my video about saving our sick planet. And you tweeted the link to your one million followers and facebooked the link, too. You are so kind. I guess you were six years old once, so you understand me, just a little six year old girl in Australia. I can't believe you watched my video on Youtube! I know you care about the oceans, too. You are concerned about our warming oceans and ocean acidification. I support you, Margaret Atwood. You are my new hero. Thank you. You are 76 and I am six. There is no difference! We are kindred spirits. I love you, Margaret Atwood."
