Well aside from the obvious Al Gores in the world, I would say Rachel Carson would be one of the most famous. She is the woman who basically started the environmental movement when she wrote the book “Silent Spring”. Sylvia Earle is another one of my favorites. While she is a marine biologist by trade, she has deep roots in all environmental causes.
There are a few famous environmentalists that most people have heard of. Richard Branson (the founder of Virgin) is a noted and extremely well respected environmentalist. Al Gore (former Vice President) is most noted for “An Inconvenient Truth” which was one of the first pieces of media that truly opened peoples eyes about global warming. There are other political leaders who are/were well known for their environmental work such as Prince Phillip, Teddy Roosevelt, and Prince Charles. Also, several famous actors are/were active environmentalists such as George Clooney, Daryl Hannah, and Steve Irwin.
There are actually a lot of well known environmentalists. Some include Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Leonardo Dicaprio, Pierce Brosnan, Julia Luis Dreyfus, Alicia Keys, Jack Johnson, Danny DeVito, Salma Hayek, Billy Joel, Morgan Freeman, Diane Keaton, Sheryl Crown, Robert Kennedy Jr., Mary-Kate Olsen, Cameron Diaz, Meg Ryan, and Alanis Morrisette. Tom Hanks is a member of Global Green USA, has an electric or hybrid car, and is considered to be a green celebrity. Brad and Angelina are also considered to be green celebrities, Brad’s involved in the Solar Neighbors program. Dicaprio is considered to be a green celeb, is a member of Global Green USA, and has an electic or hybrid car. These are only a few of many many celeb environmentalists.

John Muir is pretty well know, especially because of Muir Woods and the John Muir Trail.
