Trudie Styler will present a special fundraising appeal on BBC Radio 4 in the UK later this month.
Styler will present the appeal for the The Rainforest Foundation UK, and the segment will first air on Sunday 26th February at 7.55am and will be played again at 9.26pm. There will be one more airing on Thursday March 1st at 3.27pm.
The appeal will focus on how Rainforest Foundation mapping work secures rights for rainforest communities and protects rainforest.
The Rainforest Foundation UK was founded in 1989 by Sting and Trudie Styler, after they saw first-hand the impact the destruction of the Amazon rainforests had on the Kayapo Indians’ way of life. This sparked the Foundation’s first campaign which, in 1993, resulted in the protection of 27,359 km² of indigenous peoples’ land. The Foundation has expanded and diversified since, and has worked in more than 20 countries to date towards the mission of “supporting indigenous peoples and traditional populations of the world’s rainforest to protect their rainforest homes and fulfill their rights to land, life and livelihood”.
