Tabasco Sauce, Snowy Egrets, and Ned McIlhenny

Edward Avery McIlhenny was not necessarily someone whom you would expect to become a conservationist. But the adventurer and heir to the company that makes Tabasco sauce saved a magnificent species from extinction. The History Guy tells the story of a conservationist who proved that one person's dedication can have an enormous impact.
