Thomas King's Action Hub
My name's Thomas, I'm a fifteen-year-old animal activist from Australia; mainly focused on the protection and conservation of the orangutan and their rainforest homes of Borneo & Sumatra.
I entered the DeforestAction Project Borneo 3D contest to have a chance to spend 100 days in Borneo to be part of a 3D Action Movie - helping to save endangered rainforest and orangutans, create awareness about deforestation, and provide a sustainable livelihood for the local community. The project is led by acclaimed conservationist Dr. Willie Smits and Orangutan Outreach - you can learn more about the approach in Willie's TED Talk.
Unfortunately, I was not chosen as 1 of the top-50 candidates who have the chance to spend 100 days in Borneo. However; if I can recruit 500 supporters and raise $5,000 through my network, I'll be invited to visit Borneo to be part of the project!
Will you support my passion for DeforestAction? You can donate below to sponsor land to be redeveloped as part of this project, and join my network of supporters through a quick web site signup.
Thanks so much!!
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.
