Jose Jaime Flota
Mr. Flota has dedicated two decades of his journalistic career to the protection of the environment. His television series on the monarch butterfly and the sanctuaries of this endangered species played a key role in the creation of legislation to preserve it.
His reportage on contamination helped create ecological awareness among the inhabitants of Mexico City and gathered support for measures to clean its heavily- polluted air.
Since 1985, he has produced "60 minutes", a popular TV documentary including series on climate change and global warming. His report on Mexico's forests led to government measures to protect them.
