Robbie Bond is the Founder of Kids Speak for Parks which was launched in July 2017. A 12-year-old Hawaiian native, Bond grew up on the island of Oahu and has always had a passion for the environment and the protection of our nation’s natural wonders. Robbie created Kids Speak for Parks to ensure that our parks and monuments will remain protected long into the future. Robbie is committed to ensuring his peers across the country learn to understand and appreciate how truly vital national parks and monuments are to our country and why they should be preserved for future generations.

Robbie attends middle school in Reno, Nevada and is in the 8th grade. He is also a student at the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth and he is a Davidson Young Scholar. In 2016 Robbie received a medal for high honors in the Johns Hopkins Talent Search for mathematics. Robbie is grateful for the many awards and opportunities that have amplified his efforts, including the Diana Award, Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes, Action for Nature International Young Eco-Hero. A Delta Airlines Green up Youth Advisory Board member, Google Expeditions partner, National Park Trust student representative, and international youth ambassador for Litterati, Robbie has an episode of Marvel’s Hero Project “Roving Robbie” now streaming on Disney +.

In his free time, Robbie enjoys playing golf, fishing, snorkeling, voice-over acting and surfing. He loves the outdoors because he likes to connect with nature and “unplug”. Being outdoors is fun and peaceful! Participating in outdoor activities has made me more confident.
