Let's face it: environmentalists work hard. Really hard. 

Putting heart and soul into the work is just part of the culture.  The stakes are high for people who do it because it involves something they actually care about. Plus, for a lot of people the work is made more difficult because it not only involves program work but fundraising, bookkeeping and personnel management, etc.  It leaves very little time for other things that are important and/or make life worth living:  time with family and friends, exercise, housecleaning, doing nothing, and time spent on the river you’re working so hard to protect!
