“Forests are the lungs of our Planet!”

What an inspiration to learn about one young woman’s efforts to save the forests of our earth. Aparna Mulberry of Santa Fe, New Mexico, is on a mission. You’ll enjoy this short video that she created as an audition for a chance to go to Borneo as part of DeforestACTION’s Project Borneo. If you’re reading this before April 10, 2011, you can vote for her: http://gg.tigweb.org/tig/deforestaction/judge/. Click the checkbox next to her video — about halfway down that page — blonde girl in blue shirt.

Aparna’s commentary on rampant and irresponsible deforestation: “It’s a destruction of our Mother Earth for the purpose of Greed.”

Let’s join Aparna in embracing this commitment. Together we CAN make a difference:

“I want to protect the planet, I want to protect the future, and I’m ready to be part of the solution!”
