Emily Hunter's Action Hub

I've been selected to join DeforestACTION 

DeforestACTION = Helping Rainforest + Orangutans +  Local Economy 

Thank you to Everyone who supported me! 


What is DeforestACTION? DeforestACTION is a youth driven campaign that aims to restore the Borneo rainforest (the oldest rainforest on Earth) and protect endangered orangutans in Indonesia this summer, while providing an alternative, sustainable economy for the local people. The project is led by acclaimed conservationist Dr. Willie Smits and Orangutan Outreach

How YOU can help? If you Join my Supporters, I will get the opportunity to join DeforesACTION, working hands on in Borneo for 3 months. If you would like to donate, each $2 donated buys 1 sq. meter of forest to be protected for 99 years in Indonesia.

Who am I? My name is Emily Hunter, for eight years I have been a climate and animal rights activist. I joined Sea Shepherd campaigns to save whales in Antarctica and I've worked with  350.org to build a global climate movement. I've also recently released my first book called The Next Eco-Warriors, a collection of stories by the next generation of eco-activists. DeforestACTION is all my passions in one! 

How You Can Help!

You can help by joining my DeforestAction Network and by donating to support the project! As an applicant to the 3D Movie project, I have a special opportunity: I need to recruit 500 supporters and help raise $5,000 to earn an opportunity to visit Borneo and be part of the DeforestAction project in person! You can keep track of my progress below:

What is DeforestAction?

Youth across the planet have united to create DeforestAction - a global collaborative project to halt the destruction of rainforests, create a permanent home for orang-utans, and save the planet. From schools, homes and communities across the world, this project is one of the most important of our time, driven by youth for the future of the world.

The forests of the world are disappearing fast. If we don't do something soon, they will all be destroyed, taking away the habitat of orangutans and other wildlife. In Indonesia alone, a forest the size of 300 football fields is being cut down every hour - to make way for palm oil plantations.
