She has received the “Hellraiser of the Month” award from Mother Jones magazine,[5] and a number of other awards, including National Fisherman Magazine Award, Louis Gibbs’ Environmental Lifetime Award, Louisiana Environmental Action (LEAN) Environmental Award, Giraffe Project, Jenifer Altman Award and the Bioneers Award.[9]

In 2006, she was honored with the Blue Planet Award from Ethecon Foundation, one of the comparatively very few ‘grass-root’ foundations[10] for “more than 20 years of commitment to environmental issues, even putting her life at risk.”[11]
