Strong voices for the old-growth forest protection

Whether environmental expert, musician or content creator - our wilderness ambassadors give their voice to wilderness protection.

 

With their high profile, they generate important attention for the old-growth forest. They talk about the importance of rainforests as an essential basis for life and create awareness that the preservation of these ecosystems with all their biodiversity is the greatest lever when it comes to the race against time to preserve the global climate and biodiversity for future generations.  

Achieve more together

Thanks to their commitment, we are able to reach far more people and make them aware of our work in nature conservation, environmental education and research.

 

At the same time, we can inspire many people to get involved and thus come a little closer to our common goal of preserving the last intact and most species-rich primeval forests in the world.

 

A big and sincere thank you for this!
