Why raise awareness?
It is good to raise awareness, yes, but how will that help the rainforest?
The Prince's project proposes an emergency package
By raising awareness about rainforests and thus public support, The more people that sign up to the www.rainforestsos.org the more world
leaders will be galvanised to act.
The Emergency Package proposal that The Prince's Rainforest Project (PRP)
is pressing for will require developed-world governments to commit funding
for the rainforest nations in collaboration with international business.
"We have to find a way to make the forests worth more alive than dead." - HRH The Prince of Wales
"We do want to work alongside non-profit organisations to complement and strengthen existing resources. One way to do this is by harnessing the latest and best knowledge to help shape the future policies of decision makers. We can also help to gather support for new ideas that could support the positive initiatives that are already in place." The Prince's Rainforests Project Website
More CO2 is put into the atmosphere each year through forest destruction than the entire global transport syestem.
