Adopting An Acre of Rainforest
Rainforest Concern was established in 1993 to protect threatened natural habitats, the biodiversity they contain and the indigenous people who still depend on them for their survival. They protect and manage forest corridors, provide programs of alternative incomes for people living close to forests, encourage research, and manage volunteer programs.
Rainforest Concern operates an ‘acre sponsorship’ program to encourage the public to become directly involved in rainforest conservation. And that’s where this week’s Friday File comes in.
There is a cute animated short film on the Rainforest Concern’s website telling the story of a fellow who adopted an acre of rainforest and then goes to visit his acre. His acre is filled with rainforest animals, some of whom he has interactions with. The film is definitely worth watching, and not only for its messages. Enjoy!
