St. Francis of Assisi is regarded by many as the patron saint of animals and ecology. In his early 20's, he renounced his wealth, and embracing poverty, began restoring churches in response to God's call. Founder of the Franciscans, he lived his life preaching to both man and beast the ability and duty of all creatures to praise God, and to care for nature as stewards of God's creation.
