Big things are happening in the conservation world.
Huge issues that affect our environment - like the deforestation of tropical rainforests- happen every day without us even hearing about it.
Now, several top guns in the media world like National Geographic and Virgo Productions are teaming up with conservationist legend Dr. Willie Smits to make a 3D movie about the plight of endangered Orangutans and their forests in Borneo.
They will not be heading into the wilderness alone! Ten young and passionate people will be chosen to star in this deforestACTION initiative.
Our very own biologist, Tara Beardmore, is applying for this job-of-a-lifetime and she needs our support! You can watch her video on youtube and follow the instructions to vote. But hurry as the competition closes soon! It only takes a few seconds to sign up and vote, and it is a website well worth exploring!
Tara has worked for Ecofieldtrips since 2010 after graduating with a bachelors of Journalism and Science. She has volunteered for wildlife organizations in her hometown, Brisbane, and has had behind the scenes experience in television programs - including nature show, Totally Wild!
When she is not exploring rainforests and coral reefs with students on a trip, she is writing articles for Singapore magazine, Asian Geographic Junior.
We wish her the best of luck with Project Borneo 3D!
