College student Alexis Ulrich is named Humane Teen of the Year for work protecting seals.

Last week, the Humane Society of the United States named 19-year-old Alexis Ulrich its 2010 Humane Teen of the Year. Ulrich, a college sophomore at Arizona State University (ASU), is an outspoken animal-rights activist whose causes include boycotting seal hunts and slaughter, rescuing homeless animals, and helping orphaned animals in Africa. In January, Ulrich spent her winter holiday break from college in Africa, where she volunteered and assisted elephants at a wildlife park in Nairobi, Kenya.
